So that came as a complete item, the big black plastic bit that sits on the central trim panel aswell? If so that's not bad for 86. Was it from a dealer?

I need that. If/when you have the time for more pics I'd be very grateful.

Part numbers from your sales invoice could be handy just to make sure I get the right items.

Looks nice.

I am alone in thinking that BMW have lost their way a little bit if they are selling 'performance' auto gear selector knobs?

Does it let you select 'drive' or 'reverse' any quicker?

I'm sure BMW will be releasing the matching pipe and alcantara slippers for all those "performance" auto drivers soon.
