    I've suggested this before, but a Zanardi NSX-style knob would be high on my personal list of symmetrical gearknobs.

    The Feel's knob looks pretty good too (minus the "Feel's" logo).

    Apparently there is a market for those in the ST world, and you can charge an arm and a leg.

    You may be surprised at how many people want a bigger rear wing/more mad downforce for their FWD wagon.

    I should have chimed in sooner. What kind of commitment do you need for something similar to that finned knob and how much do you think it would weigh?

    My oem knob is past needing replaced and I think your Type R or Desert Beagle with slight finger grooves (sort of like the hurst shifter) would be sweet!

    Might be possible depending on what you are looking for. They aren't big like a Hurst shifter though so it might look odd

    It would only have 2-3 shallow grooves instead of for all your fingers. I had one that was leather like this a few years back and it was really comfortable. I’ll see if I cant find something similar.

    It was almost factory shaped but had a could slight groves on the back that made it feel great.
