If you have Navi, then you would just need one of these, right? Or will it not work?

This is what I did to my AC control buttons.

yea it will probably work, I think they are like standard I can take a picture of the back of the knob and you can compare it to yours

but is really nice touch it does not looks like much in the picture but is a big difference went you see it in person, if any of you get it you would not dissaponted and people that have ride with you before WILL notice because they look really good. and hey for a under $15 dolars mod you can't go wrong

is like the happy robot face you can't go wrong with it !

How and where did you get those chrome trim rings for the HVAC knobs?

They actually just go on. You can glue them on if you want. Mine have stayed on so far though.

For us Canadians the mod will cost $40...$20/each knob. I called the dealer closest to me today and apparently their cost is $13/each but I was like WTF....$6 across the border.

i just did calvino's rear outlet mod... a little differently. I won't do this cause I don't care enuff, but I must say...

Calvino, you are alright! These are original, not thought of before mods. And very do-able on a father of two budget.

I had enquired with JD @ Crown. He will let us know as soon as he gets a supply secured.

I had also enquired about the 335i E90's bright silver finishing rods...

Did those knobs fit the 325's with Nav? I read somewhere on this thread they didn't. Can anyone confirm or deny that?
