Interested in a 5 series iDrive Control Knob for your 3 series? - picture - Group Buy

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I'm looking for at least 5 buyers interested in a 5er iDrive Knob (see picture below) for your 3 series. The price is $140 per knob including USPS Priority Mail shipping (2-day air). For this price, you'd have to send me your existing iDrive knob so that I can make the modification and I can have the modified knob ready and on its way back to you within 2 days. Otherwise, if you'd rather not send me your current iDrive knob the price would be $175 ($35 extra) and I could have the knob on its way to you within 4 days (takes 2 days after ordering from BMW). The advantages of a 5er knob over the 3 series knob is: better looks, lower profile design, better feel, and a style that will really set off the look of your interior (as you can see in the picture below)

For more info, see this thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23109 And as you can see, the job I do is superb and looks factory installed.

The profit I'd be making is minimal so I need at least 5 people to do this if I'm going to put in the time and effort to get these knobs made. Considering (as far as I know) I'm the first in BMW history to make this modification, those of you who buy a knob can say you're one out of only 6 people in the world with this modification (or at least until someone else attempts it on their own).

1. ZuerstBMW PAID!
2. taelin PAID!
3. sunchild PAID!
4. edawg PAID!
5. saini023 PAID!

GROUP BUY CLOSED! - unless we get 5 more people interested.

If you missed out on the group buy and want a 5er knob for your 3 series, read below:

So if you want to send me your 3er knob to be fitted into a 5er knob, it's going to be $160. And if you need me to order a new 3er knob for you to be fitted into a 5er knob, it's going to be $195. How's that sound?

Post here or PM me if you're interested.
Individual Buyers
1. akap007 PAID!

UPDATE: August 9th 2006 - I'm ordering two more 5er knobs. Anyone interested?

Well, I'm only going to be doing this once so buy one while you can. Otherwise you'll be on your own to make one.

So as soon as we have 10 people commited I'll place an order with my BMW dealership for (10) 5 series leather iDrive knobs. Keep in mind guys the kind of deal you're getting here for $125 including 2-day shipping. Here's the same knob (just not fitted for a 3 series) on eBay for $75!

Sorry, I'm only doing black leather as you see in the picture. But if you want terra leather instead, you could always pop the piece out and take it to a leather tailor and ask them to do it.

Guess we don't have that many people interested. If we don't have 10 people lined up by the end of the week (Sunday) it's not going to happen.

Sorry man, but I'm not going to put the effort that's required into this unless we have 10 people. Start telling your friends about this group buy and send them to this URL. If we get 10 people great. Otherwise, not gonna happen.

Is the 7-series and 5-series leather I-drive knob the same size? Since no one wants to buy yours.
