ZHP knob and some fitted /M gloves

i installed my new zhp knob, and i really like it. much shorter, and makes the throws more pleasent. i read some horror stories here about taking them off, but the whole process took me no longer than 45 seconds. also bought some fitted driving gloves for those spirited driving, and to protect the wheel

niceee.... but everytime i see someone driving wearing "driving gloves" i think.... theirs only 2 more things in life that are MORE cringe worthy.....

1) gimp suits....


2) croc shoes (even worse when worn by men but horrific either way)


Love the gear knob however.....

I need driving gloves to autocrossing. My hands sweat like none other...

I bet the no AC thing has something to do with it.

Driving gloves are a must if you sweat.

ZHP is a must, 2nd best mod on the ride.

Happy motoring.

Damn, i love that stitched CF look. I wish I had the money to buy the pieces being sold currently in the classified. The shift knob looks sweet. I just got mine in the mail. About to put it on too.

ZHP is a Performance Package fitted for the E46 3 Series.

It's just a special knob that was fitted on the 330i's that had a ZHP package. It's a BMW OEM item.

So, did you stop in the middle for a coffee break or something?
Loving mine - the original shift knob had some appearance issues which prompted the replacement, but this one definitely has a better feel when shifting.

Not feeling it. I never liked this shift knob. I threw 2 of these away as they came when I bought my used M3 and Z4M. Actually I think I sold one for like $40 bucks. Either way they look to ebay for my tastes.

Are you sure you really don't like it? Who knows, you might just change your mind after a few weeks
