    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.

    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.

    I was actually looking into getting this one before but I hadn't heard much about it. It definitely looks nice. This is the same one the 1m and new f30 m5 comes with right?

    @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?
