idrive controller knob mod.

So I bought this controller knob cover from amazon. It turned out really good! I hated the smaller knob.

I bought the same from eBay (Hong Kong) and it fitted in 5mins and great upgrade rather than spending fortune to change whole thing

Cool! It looks awesome at night too. I like how the light shines from underneath. Very inexpensive but cool upgrade.

But if the car has the small knob wouldn't this one just cover up most of the buttons? It would have to extend over and make the function buttons less visible.

Nope. Even when the smaller knob was on it, it still had a larger circular trim under it. The larger knob is the same diameter as that circular trim. Basically ends up being the exact same dimensions as if it came that way.
