    Great Product

    Posted by Emile E. on 2014 Jan 24th

    This is a great product and I love the look. Also shorten the shift distance. My only issue is the instructions. Mine mentioned a red and black cable coming from the shifter knob, but the wires on mine were black and black with white stripe. I just switched them when the light did not work. Still great look and solid product

    Great shifter. Nice weight, which really helps going into gears. Love the light, matches the colors on my E46 M3 convertible.

    Great Product

    Great product with very nice quality. Only problem was that it shipped without the wire taps so I had to cut wires to install it. Still, after it was done I can say it was worth it :)

    Good Shift Knob

    Posted by Ramiro R. on 2012 Apr 23rd

    Its easy to under estimate the power of a good shift knob; Ive been using the standard "Goose Neck" shifter that comes with the BMW Z3 and after receiving the Illuminated Shift Knob By Bimmian I knew I made a great choice. Packaging- The packaging was exceptional and even protected the shifter box that held the shifter. Installation- In my Z3, the lighter was readily available to deliver power to the shifter and this made it very convenient for the installation. The Led is pre-wired with a black/white (Positive) and pure black (Negative) wires which come at a great length; These are easy to connect with the supplied quick connects. Installation took about 20 minutes in a slow relaxed pace (This was my first installation of this type); Overall it worked out with no problems or difficulties. The Shifter- The lights match the dash very well and I grew even more pleased when I began to use the shifter. 1. The weight of the shifter is over 5x heavier than the stock shifter which removed the "looseness" feeling that the stock shifter leaves in the system. The weight and solid feel of the shifter made shifting very predictable. 2. This shifter is also shorter than the traditional shifter which makes it feel like your shifting gets faster and I wouldn't doubt if it did! Bimmian has delivered a great, solid and reliable product; Its a value at any price!
