I have the OEM leather shift knob from my parted out '04 STi still lying around. It's in perfectly used condition with no scratches, gouges, or anything on it other than a couple of really minor surface marks. It just has the very smooth feel of a knob that was used for 60k miles.
$30 shipped or offer me something in trade (doesn't have to be car parts, could be anything). I'd like a Gerber knife or any kind of outdoor gear would work. A 3/8" ratchet would also work.
