G20 gear selector to F30

Just out of curiosity, is it possible to retrofit the crystal type gear selector that comes in G20 to a F30? Like the one that I have attached below?

Not just that, but what is it going to go well with? It's like putting an alcantara arm-rest when everything else is leather

Not helping either, I know. Sorry.

Just the gear knob looks different and cool. That's all. With the "3" present on the knob.
