    yeah i've seen them advertised but they dont look genuine.

    i've seen a few on the net that are exactly like our factory one's but with lights.

    tempted! BTW what % tints have you got?

    I am considering getting one of these for mine, but only because my gear knob is a bit battered...otherwise me personally would think its a tad bit expensive for what it is. C3 have both the genuine 6spd and 5spd going for £71.30: http://www.c3bmw.co.uk/StockItem.asp...&Item=unassign

    Really easy to install and the kit comes with all the stuff you need such as the wire taps and extension wiring to run to the ashtray/storage box bulb.

    Even though I said its a bit expensive, everyone I know who's done it all say that it looks really good in the night.

    Heres a full install from paris over on the BM car mag forum: http://www.argyrides.eu/bmw/accessor...knob/shift.htm

    Anyone else tried this (much) cheaper method ?

    http://www.matthewphillips.co.uk/index.asp?page=e28gear

    I bought 4 LED's from Maplins for about £2, and it works quite well considering its about £68 cheaper

    I haven't finished mine yet because I've just got to much going on, 2 LED's dont really provide enough glow, I need to remove some more plastic material to make room for the other 2 LED's but its easy to get as good a result as the pics in the link show.
