    I had problems with my long chrome one coming off in my hand, so I replaced it with a short leathery one :)

    Now I have that confession out of the way, I bought the "Cup Sport" shortened, weighted OEM knob used in the 3 series special edition of the same name. Gives complete OEM looks but with a better feel to the shifts. Will see if I can dig out the PN as they are still available from most dealers.

    Will be buying a Storm Motorwerks knob next.

    When I was younger mine used to come off in my hand all the time too,but even then it was a short leathery one,a lot of fond memories! It might be a contender?

    Why are you selling yours?I know it worries me a "glowing knob" but I might risk it for the right reward

    I have just changed mine for another new one. Didn't match right with my interior with the carbon dash I have.

    Hey ,c'mon, what do you mean Gazza. My knob is wooden, hard and highly polished. Why is that too much information?

    Nothing personal Bonzo old bean, just not used to comparing knobs in public. Last time was in the locker room many years ago!

    At least z knobs only need one good pull to get them off!
