Ah, I'm borrowing that image :|
Plug and play. Has the (+) on top and lights in all gear selection modes.
Bought from Bimmian but doesn't fit E39. Long story.
I'm using the SMG M shifter instead (gave up on Bimmian).
Mint condition, and I'll ship in Canada INCLUDED $100. It's a big loss but I'm fed up with trying to get it going. Bimmian asks $135+ and eBay is more.
It'll work perfect for your E46.
PayPal is ok.
