Z4 coupe/roadster's m illuminated knob is less chunky, has smooth leather and has the right height to allow 2 finger/digit shifting without having to flex the wrist- when resting on the arm rest. absolutely fab!
I might consider that.

As for the supercharger, I was considering that, but realistically, this being my everyday driver, it might be a little impractical to force all that air and GAS into the engine. This intake gives me a glimpse into what that might be like. When you get on the throttle, this intake does more dramatically decrease my gas mileage. Maybe the money invested in forced induction might be better placed in a piggy bank for the M3?
