I know that a shifter know for manual can be installed on an automatic. I just wanted to know if there was anything that has to be done to make it fit, or is it a direct replacement?

Well it fits but it twists and turns so it's not tight which is very annoying. Is there any way to make it so it doesn't twist and turn?

I have the victor/hamann knob, and they have screws on the bottom of the knob, and that makes it tight, and stay in place, without any movement at all...and I say 99% of manual knobs has the screws

im curious, how do u guys keep it from going into reverse accidently? when i had automatic i thought of putting a manual knob on it too cause they look so nice, but was always scared of that
If you don't step on the brake, it won't let you go into reverse, only neutral...

so why...

so why did bmw put the "trigger" on the shift knob if it is useless.....

usually i do not push it (D--->R or N--->D/R)....

but once happen that i shift from D to R (I've missed N.)..while moving....(and braking)in a 1/4 of second i realized what i was doing..and quickly shifted back to N......

do you think that i risk to destroy everything????

:tsk:
