Help with Shift Knob recommendation!!!
So I've been looking into buying a new Shift Knob. I really don't like the way the stock M Perforated 135i shift knob feels at all. IMO feels too light and the shift from first to second is very $#@!ty. Rarely does it feels smooth when engaging the 2nd gear. Might just be $#@!ty transmission. I have already done the CDV delete and that fixed it a little bit, but I still don't get a smooth engagement all the time. I'm thinking maybe a new shift knob that actually has some weight on it might help the shifting from 1-2. I also don't like the feel of the shift knob on my hand, it just doesn't feel natural whatsoever.
Anyways, I have been looking at the TWM Performance Shift knobs and I'm very interested in the following one: http://www.twmshiftknobs.com/shiftkn...d-phantom.html
What do you guys think? I'm still running the stock shifter. No SSK. If you have any other recommendations, please let me know.John 3:16

I have the E46 M3 ZHP shift knob from Turner Motorsports and love it. Check it out.

I just picked this up, http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E92-335...ifter/ES46508/ Its the same shift knob that comes with the BMW Performance short shift kit. Lowers the shift knob by probably an inch, its weighted, and comfy. I would highly recommend it.2011 E90 M3 \ Melbourne Rot Metallic

@lulz_m3 the BMW performance sure looks nice but my only worry is that it will feel too small in my hand. Part of the reason I hate the perforated m shift know is that the shape feels weird around my hand, it's too squary and not enough round. Do you know by any chance the weight of it?John 3:16
