I have a manual transmission in my 89 535i and I have the same problem. It seems to only happen when the temp outside is warm. In the winter I don't feel the heet. Mt shift knob gets hot and there is a lot of heat coming out around the floor from the middle. I had my sterio out for a couple days one time and it felt like I had a heater vent where my sterio was. Heat was coming out of the hole. And damn in the summer it gets hotter than hell. I asked my BMW mechanic and he didn't know what was causing it. So if any of you figure it out please e-mail me with your findings.

Thanks, Larry Cordova 89 535i
