shift knobs

i like the old skunk2 knobs. they're pretty much the same as the old ctr/itr knobs. but, it's an ice cube in the winter.

waa you guys are such babies! lol nah i was thinking of putting my stock leather knob back but two things are stopping me. 1, i dont have a stock shift boot. and 2, the setup i have looks soo nice. yeah its cold, but during these times i try to only put my hand on the knob when im shifting until it warms up in the car. in the summer the heat issue was pretty much eliminated with the use of a windshield reflective visors when i parked. if i come across a good deal on a stock shift boot, ill seriously consider it for the winter. last winter i would just put a beanie over it.

Pssh. I got my black leather driving gloves so there ain't no problem whatsoever.

 

Edit: Here's the combo I just picked out for myself once I'm straight ballin':

That's an easy way to spend about 500 bucks.

ive used a bunch of different ones, but i prefer the egg shaped ones the best. it fits nicely in my hand. stock would probably be 2nd place. this one was $35 and comes with the black plastic pieces below the knob. that's on my Forbidden short shifter.

I don't have the pic, but my fav was a hardwood sphere on my old cherokee - a little smaller then a pool ball. It was never hot or cold and had great grip if my hands were dry or sweaty. It was perfect and I bought it on eBay for $5.

It's just nice to have these things -- that's why you spend the money.

 

Those pedals, the steering wheel, and the shift knob I posted are deffo going to be fixtures in my sol when I turn my attention to the interior. My buddy has a MOMO steering wheel and shift knob combo and they just look and feel so nice.

ive been trying to obtain a 94-95 leather steering wheel for a loong time now. that would practically complete my interior :( i also just won this on ebay, im not sure if it's gonna look better or not, but it does look more luxurious. it's the Accord SiR/Accord SE "wood grain" center console $60 baby

actually I think the nicest shift knob I've ever used was the skunk 2 440 gram one. its so perfect. so what if it gets a little cold? it makes shifting easier and smoother, and it is like the perfect shape and size.

yeah, i prefer them over anything else i've used. i'm not complaining about the cold, just pointed out that it does freeze up. after a few minutes of del sol heat, it's good to go.

no no I was talking to the OP. They do get cold, but its worth it for a great shift knob. leather doesn't last.
