It's available in the same website you provide.
At 149.90 € is not that expensive.

Not that I would put it in my car, even if it were manual...

"Even if it were manual.." Whaaa? That shifter has some *serious* cool-factor! The only minus maybe is that it uses blue numbers instead of orange. Having said that, BMW has similarly moved the gear selection display to the automatic shifter handle in the most recent gen - also very nice.

If you want to see it in action, check out YouTube for videos of them in motion on customers cars. While its actual usefulness is pretty questionable, I have to give 'em credit for a pretty clean, unique approach. Problem is there's a very noticeable delay between when it goes into a gear to when it displays that gear on the LCD screen, which I would find very annoying.

I'll be sticking with my trusty, no-nonsense zhp as well.

You've never driven on my roads I think.
Worse than just what gear I'm in, I'm routinely surrounded by ALL KINDS of knobs.
