BMW 135i – ZHP Shift Knob

I was surfing the forums when a good deal popped up for a ZHP shift knob. I’ve always liked the look of the ZHP knob and figured it was time to replace the worn BMW Performance knob that I had.

Before:
zhp-shift-knob(Note the wear on the right side)

Finally something to match the steering wheel!
ZHP shift knob

After:
zhp-shift-knob-3 zhp-shift-knob-4

I couldn’t be happier. It’s actually formed to the shape of my hand, unlike the BMW Performance knob. It has a much more natural feel and is easier to go through the gears.

Conclusion: It feels great with the short shifter. Money well spent!

  1. When replacing a manual shift knob on a 2008 BMW 135i, how can you tell if the old knob will pull away from the boot, or, if the knob and boot need to be replaced as a unit?
