These classically-styled wood shift knobs were designed in-house as our homage to the timeless BMW mushroom-style shifter. Made right here in Southern California from our premium selection of wood, this shifter will look and feel right at home in your vintage BMW. The emblems designs are produced in actual cloisonne, marking a distinct departure from the typical plastic variety. The gear-pattern designs are reminiscent of those found on the long-since discontinued Amco shift knobs (though they never offered this particular 5-speed design). Our goal was to produce the best possible knob directly intended for the vintage BMW community, what you see here is the result.
Given that every threaded shift knob can be oriented a little different when fully tightened, our knobs are shipped without the emblem set in place. Once you tighten down your knob, and determine the proper position of the emblem, you can permanently attach it in place (we recommend Permatex Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive, or Liquid Nails).
If needed, you can make fine adjustments via the set screw.
The knobs are available in the following woods:
