6 MT solid metal weighted shift knob

I've been searching for a bit, and was wondering if anyone here had a source for a nice (preferably solid stainless) ball shift knob with the proper pattern embossed, to install on the 2007 E60 M5 (probably same as most manual BMW applications)

Get something leather wrapped, otherwise the knob gets realllllyyy hot.

I had one of these, solid billet: https://store.blackforestindustries....eweshkna1.html


On M3s I usually do stainless UUC ones (heaviler than billet alu), because the trans is more clunky: UUC Motorwerks Shift Knob

Thanks! I forgot about Black Forest Industries. I just ordered a knob from them.

Thanks for the replies... I like that UUC one but the insert is lame... and the nicer BMW insert only comes with the 5 speed... prefer CNC cut shift pattern rather than a plastic covered disc, but I may have to settle here. The Black Forest one is nice also, especially if someone is a huge fan of the brand as that’s what’s on the knob, but’s its a nice a logo. 🙂
