    I just saw this on an R8 parked at a car show. Never got a chance to speak to the owner. Anyone know what knob this is?

    I just wanted to say thank you again. The shift knob issue was bugging me quite a bit and was planning to rid of the macarbon knob. With your idea, I was able to find a 0.75” screw on adapter in exact 12mm diameter to match the base. 0.6”-0.75” seemed to be optimal for me, and there was plenty of thread left to secure the knob to. It is solidly secured and shifts great now. It may not seem like much to you, but it helped me a ton.

    Are there any softer finish options in the aftermarket? Leather or alcantara perhaps?
