Browsing eBay as usual.. came across this for a pretty good price. I must say it fits better than expected. It comes with various rubber bushings to fit the shifter and the smallest one fits the skinny top part of the shifter just right. The set screws go down on the thicker part of the shifter and grips extremely well. Very very pleased. What do you guys think?

Meh. I like the black Momo better, but still meh to me. I would definately not say it is a "matching" shift knob, but it is not the horrible pep boys look. A matching shift knob is the stock leather shift knob--the one with the cool blue stitching that matches the rest of the car's interior...just my opinion, which is not worth much to some, worth a lot to many many high paying clients.

Doesn't look horrible but seems a bit too flashy for the R.

You're from Baltimore... Shouldn't you be at Max's enjoying some of the fine beer selections they have there?!

Re: Matching MOMO Shift Knob (FRANCIS)

The mom knob reduces the shift throw and also feels much better as you can palm it and wrap your middle fingers around it.. no comparison to stock which make you shift pistol grip style which is a no no.

Push down and turn counter clock-wise to remove the knob.

Just to clarify, to remove the stock knob you have to push down hard and turn 1/4 turn counter-clockwise and then pull up. Don't keep turning the knob after the first 1/4 turn.


Cheers,

Yea stock one is way too big and awkward. Pictures don't do the Momo knobs justice. They're made from a solid piece of aluminum or whatever metal it is, which gives them good weight and the quality is excellent.

I think I found a pretty good match--plus when you unscrew it, it doubles as a deadly weapon (it weighs over a pound!). Makes a much nicer counterweight for shifting than the stock knob.

This is my Momo. it's a shot of the XM unit really, but you get the idea of the knob (huh huh, i said "knob", huh huh).

I think it looks really good with the space ball, it's one of the best matches i've seen.
