Now it's just fantastic, the 500 gram Raceseng knob makes the shifts butter smooth and even makes reverse easy to get.

It's a hybrid knob with stainless core and round black delrin outer. It feels fabulous and won't get too hot or cold like a bare metal one.

Pic is with the spare white stitched gaiter I had, I'll put the orange one on it now I know it works..
Where did you get the white gaiter? I tried to take mine off, but was afraid of breaking it so I am thinking of just getting a new one.

Also is this shift knob supposed to be plugged into something?

The white gaiter came attached to the M240i M performance shift knob I bought.

You just have to "snap" it off the base of the shift knob. I used a fine blade inbetween to just open it up a little then it broke away clean.

The white nylon ring you can see inside your shift boot stays attached to the boot but breaks aways from the base of the shifter.

I did the same to break the orange gaiter off the OE knob then attach to the Raceseng stalk.

The gaiter you have their looks like an illuminated version? What is that from? There is no supply there on an M2C, but i' sure it would be easy to pick up one from the buttons etc around the shift console.
