you're a eurotuner? can you tune my car?
what kinda knob are you looking for? something that looks original that feels good? or something that looks aftermarket that feels good? or something that looks crappy and feels like crap?

Can't you reuse your old shift knob?

edit: maybe the place that sold you the short shift kit can help?

Smg knob won't have any real weight to it, which is a bit of an issue in the "feel" dept.

Check out uuc motor works. They're expensive but very weighted so they feel nice. They're also high quality.
For a more original look check out the zhp shift knob. Weighted and shortened but is original bmw.

Gotta agree with everyone else the ZHP looks great (oem fit and finish) and feels great in the hand!
