ARC Style Ti Shift Knob?

Just wondering if anyone has come across a universal shift knob that is similar to the ARC brush and non-brushed burnt titanium shift knobs that will fit our cars. I would like one for my LSB M3 but ARC never made one that will fit BMW.

Pictured below is the ARC knob on a S2000. Thanks.

Coming from 2 previous S2000's, I know exactly what you're looking for. I used to have the Rick's S2K shift knob in my previous S2000s. I tried looking for something similar for my M3, but they're not very common. I did find that a company called TWM makes a spherical shift knob (various colors, too), but it's pricey at $125 for the base shift knob, not including the 6 speed pattern or different colors. Here's the link below:

I ended up buying the OEM alcantara covered shift knob for much, much cheaper and love it. I think it works well with the 330d shift lever as a best bang for the buck short-shift-kit.

Just go with a ZHP knob bro. I've driven a few s2000s with that shift knob and it does feel nice but won't look to great in an m3. And btw the s2000 shifter feels so much better than our cars. I think MrAdam had a shift knob like that in his M3. I can't remember where he got it but if you really want I can text him and ask. He doesn't come in here anymore.

If you could, that would be great. ZHP is my back up if I don't find one I like that's similar to the ARC.
