Smile DIY-change your 325,330 rotary radio knobs for the 335i

hey guys if you are like me that can't afford right know to change your 1 year old 325 or 330 here is a small mod that can make you radio looks way better using the chromerotary radio knobs of the 335i

so what you need is 2 rotary knobs part # 65-12-9-119-423

there are $6 each so the cost of this mod is $12

they looks really nice it does not look as cool as the 335i because the 335 have their climate control also chrome, but this looks way better than your original ones

so this is what you need to do

1) order the 2 knobs
2) wait for the part to come
4) open your car
5) go inside your car

6) just pull the old ones out ( yea is that easy :rocks: )
7) push the new ones in
8) enjoy

check out the picx

real oem does not have the 335 listed et but if you go to the 330i for example you see that the climate control is one part and on the diagram the radio knobs are other part

lol.. nice and cheap mod.

I too thought u meant the climate control mods when I first read it. Still, at $12, this mod can't be beat.

Awesome. Calvino, you always come up with the best idea for inexpensive mods (such as the rear power outlets).
