Smile M shifter and M brake handle

Hi All,

Does anybody know where I can be the M shifter and M brake handle (perforated leather) in the UK?

I have done a fair bit of searching and found only the shifter.

Thanks.

Got mine from ebay.de as a "kit" - http://stores.ebay.de/BMW-Autohaus-B...QQftidZ2QQtZkm

What I didn't realise was that as the M-Knob included the gaitor, the LHD version doesn't fit the RHD. What can I say? I ordered it before I got the car...

Luckily, with a bit of slicing, the knob comes off the gaitor and fits in place of the stock knob.

Edit: Useful German Words:

Schaltknauf - gear knob
Leder Manschette - Leather Gaitor
Handbremsgriff - Handbrake Grip
Auspuffblende - Exhaust Tip

These guys are great for BMW parts. They phone you back to discuss exactly the part you need and give a discount because you contact them via email! They've been brilliant for me in the past: http://www.cotswoldstore.com/PartsRequest.aspx

Reference to a teabag advert. You're either

1) Too young

2) Too posh to use teabags
2i) ...because you use loose tea
2ii) ...because you have someone else do it for you.



Anyway.

The difference between perforated leather and normal leather is that perforated leather has perforations on it and the normal leather, doesn't.

The perforated leather is what they have on the M-Sport Steering wheel and gear knob, and the M-Sport handbrake grip.

Hope that helps.

So next time I'm in Germany, if I want to say Grip Knob Tip the translation would be "Griff Knauf Blende"?

You're not far off actually - it's 'Griff-Knopf-Tipp'.

You can tell what I been watching on eBay.

I can tell you what towing bracket is as well, but they're no cheaper...

At the risk of straying on topic I would just add to Paul's recommendation. Cotswold have always been good with the bits that I've bought from them... like the bits and bobs in my Sig.
