Question What shifter knob is this?

I'm trying to find what shifter knob this is. Came with my car, not particularly fond of it. It's pretty heavy and screws into the shifter lever with 3 tiny screws (rather than just going into the slot). Also have the little screwdriver for it.

Hmm that's interesting. How sure are you? Thing is rims are momo too. Anyway what's with this shape, is it supposed to be "racing style" in any way? I don't really find it that comftorble but maybe I'm just dumb and it's made like that for a reason. Also trying to find that out.

Any comments on that elongated shape as opposed to round? Is there a point to it, or just for looks?

^^gripping purpose? maybe, im saying this because I have the round Duke from momo and after a while I don't find it comfortable...it slips. I put on the OEM ones and they feel a lot more better, and oh they're elongated shape right?

Its an old Mommo design and it is shit. Leather pops out all the time, its too heavy and i think its too ugly.
My opinion if you dont want to go with an Mtec one go with a nice and simple sphere momo one.

Remember, not all cars are as comfy as ur bimmer! a good shift knob make all the difference. but in a bimmer, it doesn't really matter

if it was momo it would have the logo all over it lmfao!
