    I have just bought an E36 AMG W124 coupe 1996 :banana: . The gear knob looks pretty worn and was hoping to find another original to replace.

    It is the original gear knob with E36 indented across the top.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of someone?

    Thanks in advance

    I doubt you will find one, they are no longer available. I had a E36 with 140k on the clock and the knob was mint. How many miles has yours covered?

    Wow I sold a brand new and unused grey one on the classifieds on this forum years ago for about £35. Should have held on to it :(

    Hi Ammar and welcome to the forum,post some pic of the car if you can
    Is it the black one you`ve bought??The original one has E 36 on the top and if your one is worn,I recomend treating it as it`ll be hard to find another one

    Hey Dash. Yes this is the black e36! It's pretty mint. Ammar looks like you're going to have to 'refurb' the existing one!

    Its easy enough to emboss leather, the same as original one, to re-cover etc.

    Hi Akash, thanks for the reply

    it's covered about 111k. Not totally worn but the perfectionist in me just wants to replace it!

    Maybe I'll just get it re-trimmed!

    Thanks for all the replies guys - really appreciate it.

    Seems as if the re-trimming is the way to go - I'm going to post some pics asap!
