2012 M6 Shift Knob Options?

I read that the 2012 shift knobs just pull straight off? is that correct? and what are the options for fitting an aftermarket. I like the stock one a lot but am looking for something that stands out from stock.

thanks

I don't know. But try this...pop the piece around the shifter off. You can use a flat head screw driver to get in between the silver top piece and the black trim piece but be careful so as not to scratch it. Or you can use you finger nail to separate the pieces. Pull the silver piece forward and out from where it sits. Disconnect the plug and move the piece out of the way. You will see 4 Phillips head screws securing the shifter. Remover those screws and I think the plate should lift right out. After that you can pull the leather covering up. Now I don't know how far it lifts up or if it can be removed this way. But you should be able to figure it out from there. It literally will take 5 minutes to do all this. If I get outside later tonight maybe I'll fiddle around with it to see how the knob comes out.

yep, I put those darn gauges in now I don't feel like messing with the trim piece again cause it was a pain to get those gauge wires to lay down right. I tried searching, didn't find much help on this..

The manual knob definitely just pops right off. You have to pull straight up (pretty hard) and twist it a little side to side as you go. Make sure you remove the boot screws first so that when it pops off you don't tear the boot.

MGW has some nice shift knobs that are close to the OEM knob but different.

And when you put the knob back on, put just a little bit of silicon rubber on the shaft first, then let the knob sit overnight. It will remove that "twist slop" that's in the factory knob.

The Super-Devil is at least 6 inches taller, has a flying motorcycle and a jar of marmalade that we believe forces you to commit adultery.

that looks really cool, for the record, the shifter shaft s non-threaded, so you need an adapter like this to fit a standard knob,, this one does work, but will make your shifter a bit taller, if you're brave enough to cut your shaft you can fix that.... but it's a better option to buy the nice kits like above because they clean up the boot nicely,,

the boot doesn't fit on this universal adapter very well.
