Exclamation What shifter knob are you using?

I'm looking for a new shifter knob.

I'm just curious to know if you use the OEM or if you have upgrade to something else???

What's your preference?

Pictures would be nice...I love pictures

OEM ZHP weighted shift knob.... the knob of all knobs.
I've got one in my car and I love it. It's shorter and heavier than stock.

No offence to anybody, but I don't know if I would like to have a M knob in a non-M car...

I just use the cheapest OEM knob that the dealer had (it's plastic, 5spd emblem on top, $25 or so).

No offense taken, I feel the same way.... but in this case, it's about the functionality of the piece, not the logo on it. You could always get a different non-M insert, they make them...

ZHP, that the one I am using now, feel good

it doesn't matter for a M or non M-car, just you like it or not
also some non M-car come with M package, right?
