lol, I knew there was something a little strange about you. I assume you don't want to much lube or your shifting will get sloppy???

That's a nice knob (echo_hrs' post).

The neat thing about MOMO knobs and MOMO boots is that the boot threads directly to the base of the knob making it look very seamless. You'll notice in the top photo that the knob as a "knob base" for universal applications so that it the knob looks properly seated.

The bottom picture shows the MOMO boot + MOMO boot/knob adapter + MOMO knob. It looks very good in that respect because it looks like a single piece.

Maybe table that suggestion to Redline Accessories in the event thay you do get a MOMO knob?

On Topic:

I removed the leather wrapped RS shift knob once I took delivery and was using this:

MOMO SHADOW


That's been removed now, as I am now using this knob (fits Toyota/Scion by direct screw on):

Autobahn Kraftwerks Speed Star Mesh

Funny..

But I didn't realize how much the Speed Star mesh looks like a microphone.

I'd like to get a euro one from the MG Rover, it has the 5 speed pattern in lieu of the momo emblem on the top...



Cheers
That's the one I have

Very nice, but be careful if your car's been sitting in the sun... HOT!

Nice one, that's the same as my current shift knob except without the mesh pattern.

Speed Star I think it's called aka Toyota Sport Shift Knob.

I have the OEM leather one.

Does it worth it to change it?

If you like it, and it is comfortable, then no need to change.

I wanted to change mine because I did not like the leather, and found it uncomfortable too. It also did not look very sporty, so I changed it.

In fact I really like it and it is not as hard as I thought to be using it with the short shift.

Any body who worries about their shifter getting hot or cold this is a tip i have for you. I put a crown royal bag on mine when its parked so it never gets hot and it does not get crazy cold. I drive with gloves most of the time anyway...just thought it might help.
