Illuminated Shift Knob

Hi Guys
Did anyone install illuminated shift knob for the 6MT?

Looks nice and would like to install. Please post any DIY guides.

Thanks

Call ECS Tuning and ask if it comes with a step-by-step installation guide? Interesting that it fits F10 and e46. Seems random.

I've done it on my 550i. Easy as pie, just made a couple of wires to draw power from the cigarette lighter light (dims with dimmer) and it snapped right in. I ordered the assembly from Turner Motorsports for about $200.

Illuminated shifter install

I've installed the exact shifter on my 2012 535i 6MT. I'll try to upload some pictures of what connections I've tapped into to make it work. I've got mine wired to illuminate when the light turn on only.

Hey Iím hoping to take a stab at this install and there is very little info about doing this in an F10. Iím wondering what all needs to be removed in order to complete this. Do I need to take the whole center console out? Any additional info would be super helpful!

This is a very easy retrofit. There are man spots you can tap into in the center console. Easiest is to wire it to the cigarette lighter, arm rest storage light.
