I recently just bought a whalen shift knob and it was shipped to me yesterday. I took it out of the box and put it on my UUC EVO3 and ran it once through the gears. Dont know if I like it that much to be honest. It looks like it should be in a museum because it is machined so well and looks amazing although I liked the ergonomics of my stock shifter better beleive it or not.
The custom part of it is the shaft of the shifter. Normally, most models have 2 black rings on the shaft but Doug Whalen made mine without the rings. The shifter is polished like a mirror.
Like I said, it is brand new (I got it yesterday at the post office)... this thing sells for 130 U.S plus duties and shipping... I paid about 175 Canadian when it got to my door. Now I can refund it since it carries a 60 day guarantee although I will sell it for 130 Canadian right now and for go my efforts of shipping it back.
If anyone is interested.... lemme know. Some members on the board have this. ask them.
