Badges /gear knob question

Post by Bodyboarder » Thu Jul 05, 2018 3:54 pm

Hi all .... wanting to get a zhp gear knob but all dealers I’ve phoned are out and don’t know when they’ll be back in , due to a manufacturing issue .

Are the ones on Amazon genuine? They have the correct part number and are around £85+ postage from autohaus24 , which I presume is from Grammy given the £16 delivery . I’d like an illuminated one but I’ll settle for a normal one as well.

Also I’d like to buy some new side/indicator badges and rear boot badge ( Bmw one , not ‘M’ one )

Are the eBay / Amazon copy ones any good or is it strictly oem ones for the quality?

Also best way to remove them ?

Appreciate any help and input given :thumbsup:

Would an illuminated M gear-knob work for you? viewtopic.php?f=7&t=107483

Sorry I can't help regarding the badges.

Thanks for the offer but that’s what I have at the moment.... looking for a zhp one as I’ve heard these improve the ‘throw’

Thanks

That's a shame.

The ZHP is a huge improvement compared to the standard one on the 3.0Si. I got mine from Cotswold BMW last June, but it isn't illuminated!

I've got the M5 gear knob on mine, illuminated, slightly heavier and shorter, from memory it was about 100 quid from beemer.

Ref badges, I always go to the dealers, I know its a potential rip off but they do seem to last...

I’ve got am Imola too... Out of interest, what year M5 did you get your gear knob from and do you by any chance have a part number and maybe some pics? I would love this conversion. Thanks 👍🏻
