Installed F10 M5 shift knob and boot. Had it on my E90 and couldn’t go without installing it on the m5

I'm about to do this too, F10 M5 shift knob seems to be a good height vs stock
I did it 8 years ago and have been very happy:

@GcD - is that your silver E60 in the back? Is that a custom hood or did you add the louvers to the OEM hood?
Yes it’s mine. Hood is a VIS carbon fiber hood.

Cheap Lenovo W520 workstation laptop - check
Fresh bios update and clean Win 7 64 bit SP1 install - check
Install laptop specific drivers for hardware (quadro card, wireless and bluetooth etc) - check
Install Firefox for expected limited web use - check
Download BG BMW Tools and Ista packages - double check

Spend 6+ hours installing, reinstalling, deleting and installing one by one, single offline install exe and all in one cumulative installers for C++ and .Net Framework to troubleshoot one 1033 MissingMethodException....

Priceless - noticing if I rerun the .Net 4.5.2 installer it keeps indicating it would like to run a repair. So uninstalled .Net 4.5.2 and got success with a clean .Net 4.6 full offline install.

Boom! WooHoo!!!!

Lol I’m an IT guy and you lost me with all the needless bs haha all you gotta do is download it all for free using Mikes Easy BMW tools and you get everything IN English. Then just configure it to talk to your dongle and boom your mad scientist-Ing that bish.

I’m doing this On A virtual machine using parallels running Win10 on an iMac.

Saved a ton of money when I did my DSC/ABS module replacement myself and used the software

^Did you weigh them? I think you save about 10# per corner.
