    Bumping old thread. Does anyone still make the shifter knobs? Can't find it anywhere... Mine could use polishing, but would like to explore the options!

    Re: Custom manual shift knob anyone?

    I designed this custom one last year. I sent the drawings and measurements to an engineering company who make a lot of gear knobs for a wide range of cars.

    Nice heavy solid machined aluminium (6082 T6 Aluminium) piston shaped, great person to deal with. I am very happy with it on my V10 MT.

    I decided not to bother putting the gear layout and numbers on top as I've been driving quite a while and can remember which gear is which.

    They now sell the same type on ebay £70.

    That looks great. Almost a custom twist to the factory knob. Sweet!

    My personal taste that ball type knob is the best suited for this car and driving position. I used AUTOart knob with custom adapter made by local turning shop

    I was happy for him to use the images from my car after I fitted it (literally a 5 minute job to fit) ...
