Anyone planning to run a ZHP shift knob on the F30?

I know these weighted knobs are quite popular among BMW enthusiasts. Wondering how it would look in a Sportline.

Thoughts?

6 Speed ZHP Shift knob: BMW Part# 25117896886

I have this on my Roadster. The one weakness I noted test driving a new 6mt F30 was how plasticy and light the stock shift knob felt.

Ok, so things are looking up for the ZHP. The M Sport models look to be identical to the coveted ZHP knob.

I'm going to interrogate a few contacts, maybe pull the trigger on a ZHP.

I am pretty sure you bought an M-Sport which means you already have this knob.

No unfortunately, I just got the Sport Line which just comes with the regular shifter.

Got my new shifter delivered last night! She's a beaut! Feels great in-hand, good weight. Can't wait to actually get my car so I can install it!

So you have confirmed that the normal ZHP knob is a direct replacement in the F30?

I've heard conflicting reports.

That's what the guy at Tuner Motorsports told me when I asked him. He said If I had any issues I can return it. We shall see. Hopefully my car will be here in 2 weeks. I'll keep you posted.

M ZHP shift knob.

Has anyone had any luck installing the M ZHP knob? What about the boot?

We sell the F30 M sport knob and boot. Its the ZHP knob with the correct boot and lower ring for plug and play.







We also offer it in a custom Tri-color config for those with M sport cars or just like a little touch of M in the other models

Do you have to replace the stock boot to use the ZHP knob on an F30?

Yes you do, the boot is stitched into the bottom of the OEM knob.

Can you send me PM for just the boot without the knob? I already have the ZHP knob. Also not sure if there's a price difference for the boot with the red stitching, if so, please send me a quote for each. Thanks.
