    It's wild that it adds $185 for a six speed. So expensive. I got lucky by picking up an F10 knob already converted to a shift boot from a forum member.

    Because after adding the additional $185 cost to their ZHP shift knob for the 6 speed w/ M logo shift pattern, it is cheaper to get the lit F10 M5 shift knob. That's why and you get the OEM color lighting.

    The reason for this is stated at the bottom of the page when you select it. They say they have to buy the shift knob with that emblem to transfer it, which is why it's so expensive. I just went with the F10 route, and used the boot too so I got a new shift knob and new leather boot out of it.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Spoiled by the ZHP shifter and this great thread, you've inspired me to install the F80 knob in my E93 M3. My research over on M3post says the F10 boot leather is a bit thicker than the stock E93 leather and is difficult to get the ring back in. The F80 knob is reported to be the same thickness as stock. And same short weighted knob like the F10 knob
    Parts are going on order today!

    I saw that and is understandable. But completely prices it out for me.

    You know, if not just for the light, imma bite the bullet and get it, one time install, last me the life of the ownership and like &@$$& cool, it's worth it.

    Is $172 the cheapest it comes?

    And do I need the retro kit

    Thanks guys.

    There are a few ways you can do this. I opted for a more OEMish and permanent approach with my install. It is detailed here in my project thread...

    http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...215#post605215

    If you look at the following posts from the link above, I have posted pictures of the "finished product" in my ZHP showing the results of my work after doing this wiring modificaiton.

    As for the two additional wires I used for this retrofit... I pulled them from this:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-BMW...e/302109127027

    As for the OEM plug, this is what I used:
    https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw...mw-61132360043

    I had shrink tubing, solder and a soldering station so this was, for me, the best route to make it all look professional and permanent. It is not hard to retrofit this into the ash tray wiring which is where you should be tapping the shift knob lighting wiring to.
