Here is a pic of the ZHP knob W/ the STOCK shift lever. Crazy how different shifts feel with JUST the different knob.

Edit: I see you have a coupe... Idk, I see it's close to the bezel, but IDK, I'll post pics on sunday when I get it installed

Yeah, it doesn't hit but comes mighty close. But I havent gotten a new knob so I will have to see if it hits with it. Also, when going into 5th, I think the lever lightly touches the driveshaft. Only when you push the lever to the right, before you go into gear. Once you're in gear there's no problem. PM me when you get it installed and let me know.

I dont think NY has emissions either. But headers would throw a SES light.

That's why you get an EU2 tune.

No need for a header man, I'm keeping the motor stock. I just landed a pretty well paying job fresh out of college and saving up to get a 07-08 335i 6-spd.

I will always love the e46, but the 07-08 e92 has one of the best motors ever built by BMW in it, and single big turbo setups on it are going to start popping up---they are RAW!

The dream would be to have a 07-08 335i AND a e46 M3. Boost+NA=Happiness!
