I was about to race an IS300 out of the tolls when I shifted hard from first to second and my wood grain "premium package" OEM shifter knob popped off in my hand!!!! I didn't think these things came off so easily. Well, he took off and I was stuck there for a second wondering what the heck happened. At least I laughed about it afterwards, but for all you that have this knob, be careful!!

It happens. My first knob was REALLY loose for some reason, so I got my dealer to replace it. It stays on nicely now, when I have it installed. (I sort of go back and forth between stock and the UUC knob. I may actually get rid of the UUC knob.)

There was a 2000 3 series that I was test driving at the dealership that had a loose knob. I don't know if it's a common problem or not, but my '99 seems to be on their pretty tight.
