I have. Recently replaced T-handle with E-36 pistol grip based upon a gent's post on the E-34
board. I never liked the T-handle and I like to
stir the slushbox on my 7 on occasion to get the big six up on the cam. Will dig out the post. Transition is a little tricky...involves retrofitting a E-36 shifter shaft to your E-32 shifter assy "base" as cable enters the E-36 base on the other side. Involves pressing out shifter shaft pin and repressing in pin with new E-36 shaft/old E-32 shifter base. You need the E-36 shaft because of the internal geometry of new pistol grip knob. End result is sweet but whole thing takes a little effort and a few dollars.

has anybody replaced their shift lever to a different style
like on the new sevens?
