Is this a OEM or aftermarket Shift lever? Pictures

Hi, so long story short, I never owned a BMW so i don't know how high the shift lever is, so i took pictures and someone more experienced could tell me..

I'm asking because as you can see from the pictures the lever looks pretty beat up, and I replaced the shift knob 2x already, and they keep loosening up.

So I don't know if I should buy a OEM BMW shift Knob which would be firm and resolve my problems or should I replace the lever as well.

Finally is the shift sawed off to make a "getto short throw shifter"?

Thanks for any help
