    I found a picture of my Momo shift knob, Its not a very good shot of it, but you can get an Idea of what it would look like in your car. Its gotta be one of my favorite shift knobs I've owned.

    I too have the subaru MOMO shift knob. I like it a lot except for the fact that it gets FREEEEEEZING cold. I do prefer it to the stock leather knob.

    Here is a pic i took, i have a few others somewhere if you are interested.

    Hahaha I hear ya on that. One time I was just getting out of basketball practice so my hands were kinda sweaty. I went to put the car in neutral to so I could warm it up some and my hand got stuck to it. It peeled off and left some skin on there. It wasn't too pretty.

    I had that LNR carbon shift knob in my car. It's a beautiful piece if you like CF (which I love). If you're looking for something with some weight to it, this ain't it. SUPER light. I also find all the ball-style knobs not to my liking. I had a momo air-leather knob and I didn't like that either. I also had a greddy counter-weighted shift knob that was entirely too small. I ended up going with something more pistol grip that ball style...

    I really like the baseball style shifters. I think I might get a Momo of some kind.
    How is the weight on the momo shifters?

    I lilke the Perrin knob that I got. No set screws, just twist on nice and tight and there ya go! Although it does get a bit cold.....anyone heard of a heated shift knob other than someone setting fire to it or their tranny? Off subject, take a look.

    I like the prodrive. The logo is a raised decal, so I left it off and now I've got a nice stealth black aluminum knob. definitely gets pretty frosty though. actually helps shift speed. its good and heavy, but still a good deal lighter than stock.

    I hate metal shift knobs. Too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer...
