be careful when getting your car valet parked or having someone else drive it for whatever reason, such as a mechanic/shop. you never know what kind of mistakes people might make.

hell, i drive a type-s and had a plain black shift knob without the shift pattern anywhere, and got so nervous that i ordered an s2k shift knob with the pattern just in case.

I think its a great dress up for any auto ... even tho ppl flame on ... about dressing up an auto to look like manual.. ...On the cluster clearly shows you ... what drive your in anyways ..
i say its a great write up ... i would do that to my wife's car if she wants it ...

I did this recently with my interior swap. I actually really like the outcome, coming from a scuffed up auto-plate with an old leather RL knob to oem leather and a gunmetal blox knob makes a huge difference in the look. I have no intentions of passing the car off as a type-s or manual, just did it because it looks boss...And it's my car so I don't care what the haters have to say about it. To each their own, really a nice cosmetic upgrade.

Where did you buy the boot piece from and how much? does it give u color options (I have tan interior)

Also can I get http://www.kseriesparts.com/cr/RBT-SHIFT-NEO.html this to fit on it?

^ whole boot piece comes as one. You can separate it and color change it.

That knob won't fit without putting electrical tape around the threads. It's too wide
Website where I can buy? Or just delray is the cheapest, what part # is it?

Is their any knob that is the same color that can fit it? :wavey:
