Default WTB: Alpina Emblem for Manual Shift Knob

As the title states I'm looking to purchase an Alpina emblem that will go on my shift knob. The plastic is cracked on mine. I'd rather not buy a whole new shift knob and the one I have now has separated from the plastic inside, so it should be easy to remove and replace provided I can find a replacement and then I can epoxy the whole thing back together.

Testdriver got my 6sp Alpina crest from Germany, perhaps you can ask him. If not, I do see those knobs on ebay.co.uk and ebay.de on a pretty regular basis.

Thanks. Post up a link if you come across one please

Hopefully shipping won't cost an arm and a leg, but I'm guessing it will make it not worthwhile. I shipped a small box (probably only about 6" square) to a friend in the UK and it cost $40

Alpina can replace that - it costs about 10 Euros (IIRC), but you have to send them the knob to repair.

And P.S. Alpina does no have any new knobs any more (wooden - for E36/E34 etc.)

Hmmm...no new shift knobs...That could be annoying. I think I'd have to go through KSK in the US to get mine fixed and so far their prices seem crazy.

Thanks for the info though!

Default Just found one for you

http://www.ebay.de/itm/Bmw-Original-...item20cfb19438

and another one here:

You'll still need to negociate shipping out of Germany.

Cheers

My shift knob looks a whole lot like yours (ie. the emblem is cracked all to hell). It seems that these shift knobs aren't replaceable anymore (at least according to KSK, I do have friends living in Europe if anybody has a source over there to suggest?).

I can restore/refinish the wood just fine, but I need a new (plexiglass?) emblem. Did you manage to get yours fixed? If so, where/how?

I also noticed the post about sending it to Alpina for repair... should I contact them directly (ie. through their German site)? Or do I have do go through KSK since I'm in North America?

Nope, I haven't got it fixed, so it still looks like crap. I've got a number of other things that need priority over this one now.

I didn't know that they weren't making them anymore, but I noticed that the replacement ones have a different colour of wood anyway which sort of defeats the whole point of replacing it IMO. This is why I want to just replace the emblem on the top.

Default Alpina shift knob

I am a nubie here. i do not have an Alpina, but have an either new, or very close to new gear shift knob and figure it might be good for one of you guys. I can't tell the difference. I am posting two pictures. Anything that looks like a blem is flash reflection as I have the knob in my hand and it is immaculate. I see them going for $150 and more on German Ebay. I will take $140 shipped in the USA for this
