Recently installed the Whalen Shift Machine.. It goes good with the MOMO steering wheel plus its much shorter than the stock shifter. Watch the for sale section for a lighted m3 shift knob :) Also, a friend of mine sold me a Dinan Front Strut bar for $250 CND hehe :) Now I just need to test them out at the autocross :D

I just got my Whalen Shift Knob put in 2 weeks ago after my tranny swap was done. Great knob! I love how it's heavy and it feels great when changing gears due to the heavy weight of it. I have the brushed version tho. Not the polished like yours.

Oh hell yea! but it's a nice hot tho. I HATE it if my car is parked in the sun and I come back to the car and the shifter is WAAAAY to hot to touch. I have to have an extra cloth in my car to use over it or else I will burn my hand. :mad:

what is the weight of the new knob?
I gutted my original illuminated shift knob and added weights inside it... did the trick, but need a shorter shift stalk... :(

looks good though. good work.
