    That is my knob on my car. I got it from O'Reilleys for $10.

    It is funny, I get more compliments on my 10 dollar shift knob than my 365 dollar exhaust...

    The thing i hate about metal shift knobs is when the sun hits them when the car is in a parking lot i can barely touch it, also those cold mornings are horrible when you have to feel that freezing metal shift knob

    you can get a custom knob made from wrxdriftr on nasioc. Or get one his knobs at http://turninconcepts10.chainreactio...Path=1_178_179. I got one custom made out of acetal copolymer from wrxdriftr, it's a G4 style knob and I love it, the acetal copolymer stays the same temp no matter how hot or cold it is outside. All of his knobs thread onto your shifter, no set screws that get loose after time like the Momo knobs.
