BMW Shift Knobs, Shift Boots, & Shift Handles for BMW 3 Series E46 (1999-2005)

Clear BMW chassis
Your shift knob and your steering wheel (along with the pedals) are some of the most important control surfaces in your car. We believe these surfaces should not only look exceptional but perform and function beyond expectations. We offer shift knobs that are Original BMW parts, MOMO from Italy, and other brands that we feel make driving more enjoyable and enhance the technical sophistication that your BMW embodies.

BMW shift knobs are easy to replace. On manual transmission models, the knob is pressed into a groove at the top of the shift lever. It simply needs to be pulled off - place the transmission into 2nd gear and yank hard towards your chest (not your head). 2nd gear offers a better leverage point than anything else. To install the new knob just slide it over the shift lever and press down firmly. You will feel the knob 'snap' into place.

Note that some factory knobs are a one-piece design with the boot. Upgrading your knob may require a new boot as well.

This Genuine BMW shift knob is about 3/4" shorter than the "standard" shift knobs and is weighted (5.4oz) to give a better, more substantial, shifter feel for the driver. We love the subtle, yet noticeable improvement this makes in the "feel" of gear changes. It's also identical in size/shape/weight to the shift knob that came on the E46 330 ZHP, and is available in either 5 speed or 6 speed gear shift patterns.

Your choice of shift patterns:
+ 5 Speed ZHP Shift knob: BMW Part # 25117896031 (25-11-7-896-031)
+ 6 Speed ZHP Shift knob: BMW Part # 25117896886 (25-11-7-896-886)

BMW ZHP Shift Knob installed in E36 M3 Perhaps best of all, this shift knob fits ALL 1982 and newer manual transmission BMWs. That's right -- this knob can be used on ALL BMWs, 1982 and later. So no matter what model BMW you have -- E30, E36, E46, E90 or E92 or anything else -- this knob will look, work, and feel GREAT. This knob also looks and works great on all 1 series including 128i and 135i.

Note that many newer models have a 1-piece knob + boot. This is standard on most M cars and on some other BMWs. We sell new replacement boots to use with this shift knob, choose the option below if you would like one included with your order (not for E9X M3 models).

These are complete with the lower plastic frame for a simple and quick install. This is a direct replacement for any 2-piece boot and knob. If you have a one-piece knob + boot you will need to also buy a shift knob to work with this. Fits left-hand drive models only.

This is the OE shifter for the E46 325xi and the 330xi (up to 03/2003) and the E36 Z3 1.9 and 2.5.

The shift lever out of the Z3 1.9 delivers a smooth and quiet shift without the notchiness and effort of aftermarket short shift kits. The Z3 shifter in the E30 is approximately 20% shorter than the original E30 shifter - less reduction than a full short shift kit but the perfect compromise between stock and aftermarket. We have installed multiple shift levers in the E30 but the Z3 1.9 feels the best to us. The shift knob height is reduced by about 1/4". This is the Genuine BMW Z3 1.9 shift lever and a direct fit to 6/86-1992 E30 318i/is, 325e/es, and 325i/is.

E30 install note: there is a bowl-shaped vibration damper mounted with the transmission flex disc (guibo). This damper needs to be removed or you need to bend the stock selector rod so it will clear. Most E30s already have the vibration damper removed so don't be surprised if it's not there. If you do choose to remove it, this would be the perfect time to replace the flex disc. On some 325e models the flex disc is a larger diameter and the selector rod will need to be bent to clear it.

This item fits the following BMWs:
1990-1992 E30 BMW 318i 318is 318ic
6/1986-1992 E30 BMW 325e 325es 325i 325ic 325is
