    just a note.

    pic attached is from e60M5 type.

    as for e90/92M3 it doesn't have the "-" & "+" on the knob.

    good interior upgrade!

    i believe this is a full kit with functional light indicators n requires minor re-wiring..good price for brand new item as I've seen those used sets selling for sgd300+ at bmw-sg forum..imo this M5 knob looks a bit better than M3

    i may be wrong so let's wait for IM's update

    Just for comparison sake, here's the photo M3 and M5 DCT gear knob. IMO, the M5 one looks much better.

    Vixxx installed his for about RM300. The workmanship charges is high due to the wiring job involved and there might be a need to grind the centre knob shaft to fit the new knob (depending on model). However, those who are interested may install all at a single place to negotiate cheaper workmanship charges.

    Hi guys,

    Sorry to keep you all waiting, BMWCM was down all of last night and this morning.
    I have obtained permission from initialM to proceed with the group buy as I can get a lower price to benefit all of you interested.


    The price is for the gearknob with E60 M5 wiring (E60 M5 'selector handle SMG' part #25162282750) is RM600.00 inclusive of shipping to me.

    The price for a plug and play harness for E90/92/93 is an additional RM200.00


    If you want to install it one method is to cut/splice & join wires. Disadvantage of this method is it is not easy to revert back to stock as your car wiring will need to be cut.

    Saw in vixxx thread that cost to install is around RM300 at his mechanic.


    I am looking for instructions to make a plug and play harness for E39, E46 & E60. I will update if I find any solution.

    I have a solution for E90/92/93 drivers to keep the car wiring harness intact by using genuine connector/wiring from BMW at additional cost to make a harness which is plug & play and can be easily reverted to stock. Please check your car wiring to make sure it looks like the one in the link posted below.
    Cost for the wiring is RM180.00 including shipping to me.
    I have spoken to my brother e34_lover and he is willing to assemble the harness for an additional RM20.00 each (I am not good at doing those stuff haha).

    The parts are used to make the harness is listed below:

    #61136909058 x3
    #61130005197 x16
    #61136913635 x2
    #61130005198 x10
    #61130007449 x3
    #61130007452 x3

    Wiring diagram is here: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=232777

    The shift boot/boot ring on this shift knob will NOT fit on any model than the E60 M5.

    It FITS on the E46 M3 (SMG) by swapping in the original boot ring.

    It can be made to fit other models by cutting off the E60 M5 shift boot and zip tying your original shift boot to the knob.

    Example shown below:

    Will PM all confirmed parties with my banking details once the minimum quantity of 5 sets is reached.
    I will require full payment as the parts are non-refundable by my supplier.
