It's a matter of taste...

...but I just love my

UUC Motorwerks Shift Knob

The RK Shadow

It looks good, is well made and fits great. Has a good feel to it and is substantial without being too heavy to cause problems (if you buy off on that theory)

UUC's RK2 MAGNUM here is a pic of mine....I love the way it feels and the weight is perfect with short shifter.

I was just looking for one myself yesterday and came across one on the Turner Motorsports website. It's carbon fiber, more long than round, and has "tms" etched on the top. It looks hot. I think it runs close to $100. Check it out! If you don't go with that one, go with UUC. They have a ton of different knobs of all dif. styles. Good luck!

Ian that is like the one I have that is BMW oem with a titanium finish. The problem with it is now that I have driven about 40k on it the finish is wearing off and it looks like crap. The finish wears from the 12 - 4 oclock position.

Hmmm... no mention (yet) of Whalen "shift machine" ????
There is one for sale in the classifieds board but not sure if it is brushed or polished as shown?

Why the hell does a shifter knob cost $125? I mean its a chunk of metal that cost no more than $10(atleasy for the steel ones). Its then lathed...I mean its not exactly i piece that takes engineering... :rolleyes:

Coz people needs to make a living out from people who value the product .. cost to one is no business to the other. Just like .... someone can say you are over-paid... someone can say you worth the money, and someone can say you deserve more . :thumbup:
