Finally, my questions have been answered. I have tried searching for this subject. I'm going to retrofit a SMG CF knob onto my ZHP.

Nothing. Its just what I said, pull the old knob out and put the new one in. The new one, since it doesn't have that rod you're referring to, has to be held in place by 3 small screws that you use an allen wrench to tighten it with. After that, you still need to push the brake pedal to move the shifter out of Park, but the you can move it freely after. By "Freely", I mean there's no button to press, but you can still feel the notches (so to speak) when you move from R to N to D, etc.

God, Great info, I searched for days! So it's that easy huh? Just pull the old knob out, Do you have to screw the sides with an allen wrench because I know some knobs don't come with the screws they just slide in....

This knob for sale?

Hi,
It appears this knob is for sale due to the message in the lower left corner. If so, and it's till available, I'm interested in more details, such as:
1. brand
2. was this made for an E46, or does it require some modifications to the car
3. price
Thanks.
