I like them, I want to get rid of my M door sills as well. They're so tacky on a non-M car.

Although I prefer no M badges, I don't mind them when they're adhered to a performance part (e.g. M-Sport wheels, shift knob, etc.). Like if I could get the ZHP knob without the ///M I would.

But the door sills? Nothing performance about those! I hate the M foot rest too, but that's out of sight 99% of the time so I'm not going to pay money to get rid of it.

What shift knob are you running, the BMW Performance one? I considered it but didn't think it would match the IS trim well, two different colors of aluminium.

I'm pretty particular lets say and I never noticed it as standing out to me, in fact I never even thought about at all until now you just made me go take another look haha. Since everything is OEM it really doesn't stand out as anything un-ordinary or out of place, I would say technically yes they are a different shade, but I would attribute most of that to the texture in the trim reflecting the light less cuz of the pattern cut into it compared to the flat 'polished' surfaces on the knobs if that makes sense.

Check the shifter wire plug and cables. Most likely you have some stripped wires and it's making contact.
P.S that's how you actually retrofit paddle shifters

Finished changing my entire valve cover. Just did the gasket two years ago and now it seems like the VC cracked and leaked oil on the header/exhaust (not sure where the crack is though). Went with URO since it got the most positive reviews.

I like it, first image I've seen of it on an iS. Does the metal get super hot if it's been sitting out in the sun?

I'm planning to upgrade to an alcantara wheel in the future, I'll revisit this shift knob when that time comes.

My E90 is currently at the dealership for a VCG repair under the SULEV 15 year, 150,000 mile warranty. I'm currently in a 2019 G20 330i. I have to say, the G20 to me drives better than the F series. However, nowhere near the solid, driver feedback, heavy feel of my E90. My E90 is 11 years old, and it looks, and drives like day one. I truly enjoy it.

Basically, LCI's have the piece that the euro has - so burnish some teeth and it works.
