Default Best place to buy zhp gearnob?

I've just ordered the bits for the 330 gear shifter and am hoping it will be worth the money when fitted

I'm thinking of coupling the above mod with a ZHP gearnob....BMW seem not to have them in stock until July and I'm wondering if anyone can guide me where to get one from

There's a guy selling them on ebay from Bulgaria I think but unclear if it's a genuone item and that's a must

Thanks in advance

Do you mean 330D (i.e. BMW sport shift option for M3)? If so, yes it will be worth it, especially if you replace the broomstick with the clubsport gear knob or F10 M5 gear knob (same but illuminated with gaitor).

I have the latter and it works very well with the short shift.

You could try checking with a few dealers in case someone has one knocking about or was that a BMW-wide stock check you referred to?

Cheers,

David

That Bulgarian one does not look legit.

Yes I meant the 330 shifter......

The chap at my local BMW dealership stated that the ZHP knob was out of stock and only available from Germany in July.......so I guess its going to have to be an after market purchase. I don
't want any imitations bits for something as important as a gear knob!

Either re-use your existing one until stock becomes available or get a cheap interim one. July is not too bad!
