upgrading/changing the shifter on X5M

Anyone knows how and if it possible to change the shifter on X5M with something more like the M5 shifter.

Thank you.

I don't think you would be able to switch the shifters. The M5 uses a MDCT transmission which is basically a manual automatic transmission. There is no Park until you shut off the car unlike ours which has the button to put the transmission in park.

It doesn't have to be the same thing just looking for an upgrade something shorter then our shifter.

Thank you.
