    What shift knob do you use?

    I know we talk a ton about our knobs in other posts but I couldn't find a post on just what one has and if you would recommend it. (Personally looking into replacing my stock and want to see what works and what doesn't)
    Please add pictures and price and even where you got it at to help others in the future.

    To start off. 2015 WRX Stock knob. Price 27,000 (vehicle cost ) plastic and light feelig.


    (I think there will be a lot of knob jokes coming)

    I have a Flossy Knob on my 14 WRX. Wanted the 5 speed engraved. It's heavier than stock at just over a pound. People have had complaints with their service but I never had an issue.

    Some goofy carbon fiber ball deal. I'm probably going to find a stock, or leather knob soon.

    I don't want to say yes then find a leather knob I like better. Thanks though. I'm really funny about shift knobs, hard smooth ones blow when it'd -14 in the winter.

    Well I was using an Anarchy Motive Pretty in Pink. BUT. I am now using stock knob.

    I sent the AM knob back at the beginning of February for a warranty recoating. I still haven't seen my shift knob. Since I bought it through ... the *other* forum ... I figured I'd try to work with the person who'd sold it, even though the Paypal invoice came from AM (as did all of the other shipping stuff), but at this point I am probably going to email the official AM email, even though I'm pretty sure it's the same person.



    I guess I should go on to say, that other than the above issues, I really like it, especially in the summer since I'm always cold, and so I hate it in the winter. Typically I've seen them for sale on group buys ranging from $85-$105.

    Cflip.... I saw many of those but they were just about one or comparing two... I thought to have all of them all in one post would be more beneficial.

    I never understood paying for a nice shift knob just to have to cover it when it's hot or cold out... it's like " oh man, it's 60 degrees out today I can use my $200 shift knob!"

    Also, Brucewayne, I ordered a custom knob from flossy once, custom powdercoat, custom engraving, gave them 3 months, kept getting excuses, tried to get a refund and they suddenly said it was on it's way. Waited another month, never showed, tried to get a refund they said it mustve gotten lost they'd make a new one, waited another month, till no knob, and finally after another month, phone calls, emails, and legal action threats, I got my money back.... so it literally took 6 months to get a 30 second paypal refund.
