    Besides the installation is there any downside to the lit knob over standard? It does look nice

    It comes down to what you want. My M3 has a lit shift knob so I was given a lit F10 M5 shift knob brand new by Tony to install into my M3 which I did. I loved this shift knob compared to the OE lit broom stick shift knob that was there. A big improvement in my opinion...

    I installed the lit F10 M5 shift knob in my ZHP recently because again, I was given another one as a gift from a good friend of mine to install it in the ZHP so that's what I did. Tapping into the ash tray lighting wires is very easy and only takes a few minutes once you have access to it.

    For me cost was not an issue since in both cases it was free... however with that said Vas is correct. Cost is a factor as the F10 M5 shift knob can be had for slightly less than $300 and if you go with the LeatherZ lit ZHP shift knob you will pay considerably more to have that lit shift knob so you have to ask yourself if it is worth the extra cost to have a lit shift knob in your car... based on what you have said already I suspect not.

    Here is the F10 backlit shiftknob in all its glory. Love this thing--it's literally the ZHP shift knob, but backlit. Tie it into the little light in the ashtray...

    Confused. If you can get the same thing from leatherz then why go with the F10 lit version at more cost?

    Illuminated Black Leather Shift Knob - 6 Speed - F10 M5, Genuine BMW part # 25112284205.

    Turner wants $226 for it. Product Details:
    This Genuine BMW leather shift knob and boot originally was fitted to the F10 M5 but has been a popular mod for E46 M3 owners. The electric connector is the same as the E46 M3. The M5 shift boot will fit on the E46 base frame but may need to be trimmed some because it is 15mm longer or the boot may be completely removed.
