UUC RK SHADOW SHIFTER KNOB
Completed 4/28/2004

DESCRIPTION
Install UUC RK Shadow Shifter Knob in a manual transmission 330i.

PARTS NEEDED
1 - UUC RK Shadow Shifter Knob
     (UUC MOTORWERKS $125 part #RKSHADOW)

TOOLS NEEDED
None

INSTALLATION
I wanted to replace the stock shift knob with something a little more ergonomic and nicer looking. This is easy to do! Some of these pictures I used from the first car Project Car, but it is the same procedure.

1. Give the shifter knob a good pull straight up to remove it (Photo A). It isn't that hard to pull off, but watch your head if it lets go quickly.

2. Slide the RK Shadow on, twist it a bit to line up the slot on the shifter lever and give it a good smack to seat it snug on the lever. All done (Photo B & C).

 REVIEW

After getting the ZHP, I *knew* I would be getting the RK Shadow Set. They really compliment the Cube Trim interior and contrast well with the Aluminum color. They feel really nice in your hand and the leather face is smooth and perfectly placed. The shift pattern is available in 5 or 6 speed and also in Aluminum or BMW Blue colors.
