Has anyone retrofit an SMG dome to their E46?

Simply for visual appeal.
Has anyone put an SMG dome on their E46 with Manual Transmission?
Ive done a search and seen a few retrofits for Auto's, but nothing for manuals.
Is it as simple as just fitting it on? Or will it not line up correctly?

Won't work with a manual, the range of movement of the manual stick is too great.
It doesn't even work well with an auto without cutting out part of the SMG dome.
