    Personal shift knob where I removed the original blue and silver logo that I had worn out (and never liked) and recessed a logo from a key chain.

    I rotate between the leather logo which came with my car, the wood one with logo and a NOS plain wood one (3rd from left), lately keeping with the plain one because not having the logo straight all the time after a few shifts bugged me. The 4th one is a repro.

    This is what is in there now. It came with my car and had a BMW logo that wouldn’t stay out. Eventually I’ll find a 31mm roundel sticker to out in there. I plan on running the oem knob from my parts car.

    I’m with you Steve, I hate it when the emblem rotates, I just use the stock wood knob now.

    It’s the shifter itself that rotates on its rubber bushings.

    I always wondered if that was by design or something worn out

    if there is a place in the world to find a one egg box it might be there
