Not a newbie introduction post, but a change of gear knob Very Happy

Bought this one from the US, solid metal and shorter than the standard item which I never really liked (looks and feels a bit cheap to me).

Got it from here:

http://www.function-first.com/products/interior/classic-shift-knob

I had a Storm knob in my M, never had any issues with heat / cold issues, but then again I don't drive the 911 as a daily so it does not bother me at all.

The extra weight and the lowered position means it makes for easier shifting.

Mega knob. Surprised

You will need a knob warmer in XL for the winter months. Very Happy
