View Full Version : Tyre R style EL glow shiftknnob install *PICS*

02-12-2003, 04:59 PM
I just got my new shift knob, its very close to the silver color of the dash, and is very heavy (steel i think) it has the shift pattern engraved through the top and red/orange EL glo behind it. I wired it to come on with my headlights. The install was a bit tricky it came with an inverter you have to wire in, and the knob itself has 2 wires coming out of it. I used peices of the stock knob to hold the boot up [note: im getting the ITR leather boot - looks much better] Overall i am happy with the look in the day and night. . espically at night, it matches the dash lights M5 style :D

ps: i cant wait for my progress springs to get here!!!!!! :)

Looks nice. Any reason why you took out the right cover for the optional cigarette accessory on the console?

Thanks for the pics JO3y!... I got mine on Ebay, too. There are a ton of 'em in blue, red and purple, all buy it now $25.00... can't wait... I am gettin' the 96-00 Type R Shift boot that matches the steering wheel and seats, so it should turn out pretty neat.
