I just did a few more maintenance items (Fuel Filter, Clutch Line, Front Door Lock Actuators, Oil Change, Coolant etc) and my wonderful wife decided to purchase me an Alcantara shift boot, e-brake boot and ZHP sift knob for my birthday.
So, I thought that I'd share. These are Coby Wheel boots and the ZHP knob is Genuine BMW, purchased from ECS.

I am going back and forth on whether I want to do a Coby Wheel Alcantara facelift steering wheel or get a fattened-up leather facelift steering wheel with or without partial Alcantara pieces.

#20: Re: 2000 M5 Restoration Project (Pic Heavy) Author: 335iAdam, Posted: Fri May 29, 2015 2:10 am ---- Correct.
You would need to go with an F10 M5 knob (which is ever slightly different) in order to get a factory illuminated piece.
My plan is to integrate illumination into my ZHP knob using my factory knob or, more likely, a donor E39 M5 factory knob.

I have recently done the clutch/flywheel and subframe/diff bushings, along with a whole slew of other goodies (Genuine Pilot/Throwout Bearings, Motor Mounts, Mid Brake Lines, Shifter Refresh etc).
Car is driving fantastic and has beast power for sure. I also did some additional Leatherique work on the seats. I kind of went a little crazy and bought 8 gallons of the stuff to get a better deal, hehe.
I figured that I would also include a little love for the E70 with some fresh Angel Eye LEDs.
