VINTAGE ALUMINUM SHIFT KNOB FOR BMW E21, E28, E30
A modern twist on a classic design. The Garagistic Aluminum vintage shift knob. Based on the classic mushroom shaped shift knob found in E30s and E28s, we made a modernized aluminum version! Made in house in the USA, these aluminum Vintage shift knobs offer a better throw feel and control with unmatched quality and no ghetto side set screw setups to hold it in place. Machined in our Westminster CA location using 6061 aluminum!
Not to mention that this is a direct replacement to OEM knobs using our threaded adapter that allows you to install this shift knob like a factory knob clip setup. We took the time to develop our very own clip system that mimics the OEM BMW shift knob clip system. That means a clean looking interior with no set-screws or nightmarish press fits.
Available in raw aluminum or anodized black (we also carry a delrin version of shift knob). We offer these in Recessed and Non-recessed versions so you can choose to run an OEM BMW Shift pattern or have a clean shaved look.
Once you try driving with a weighted gear knob, you will never want to go back to stock. The difference is quite simply amazing. Our aluminum vintage shift knob weighs 120 grams to be exact!
There is no need to cut, drill, or modify your factory shift lever to install. Please note that for BMWs with integrated shift boots modification will be required. Installation Difficulty is very BASIC (Simple Tools, No Special Knowledge Required). You will be required to remove your original shift knob in order to install this shift knob. Removing of your original knob is done by pulling up on the knob with high force without hitting yourself in the face.
