but if the OP still wants an oem stubby shift knob like factory on the ZHP and lighted then he will need to buy one that is modified or modify it. or he can pay more and take the shift boot off the F10 M5. for someone with the alcantara shift boot is where this situation would come up most often.

look like getbmwparts has M5 knob/boot here
The F10 M5 knob costs $125. So the same price as the ones on eBay and much higher quality. It's much cheaper than the LeatherZ knob if you count the 6-speed insert too.

The M5 boot fits pretty easily on the E46 base. Or you can just separate the knob from the boot -- it's pretty easy.

No reason to buy a modified ZHP knob with the F10 knob available.
