Can't wait to install it once it arrives.
I think it would compliment my cf shift boot perfectly

Mine was waiting for me when I got home. Nice quality, damn heavy, screws right on. Shifts good in the driveway. I'll update after I run some errands tonight.

ETA: I'm impressed by how much the weight improves the feel of shifting, certainly a bigger difference than I would have thought. Feels great in the hand too, really good size. It looks like the gunmetal's going to be a dead-on match to the dash trim, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it in the daylight.

ETA: Gunmetal is a very close match to the dash trim, only a bit off because the knob is shiny. Shift knob sits low. Loving the shifting feel on the way into work this morning.

Summary: It's a keeper.

Thanks for the quick review!

It was a difficult product for us to put the actual difference you feel into words. So we put up a review, but it's hard to put what you feel into words with regards to a shift knob, as most people will dismiss it as hype. But when people have the opportunity to feel for themselves, that's when they understand.

Thanks again!

Agreed. I've read about the difference but it's something you really have to feel to appreciate.

Picked up mine today. Good God this thing is heavy. Put it on for the drive back home and wow. Just wow. What a difference it makes. It really does make shifts almost effortless. The shape is going to take some getting used to but not a big deal at all. This knob is amazing

Thinking about raising the knob up a bit by, you know, threading a couple nuts onto the shift lever with a lock washer between them and then tightening them into each other (what the hell is that called?). Shouldn't be a problem, right?

I'm getting super excited from all these reviews. I've never purchased a weighted shift knob before thinking they're all the same ( excuse my ignorance/lack of knowledge ) but after some research, weighted is the way to go!

Yeah, that shouldn't be a problem. M12x1.25 nuts.

Glad everyone else is enjoying them!

It depends on which colors we got back from the powdercoater before others. There's no favoritism, just supply shortages. Yours specifically is on the way though, give it 2 days.

Thanks!

Mine hasn't shown up either. I'm kind of surprised since I'm also in SoCal but no worries! I'm just super excited. I've wanted one since I read the review.

Install was simple . So much easier to shift into 1st n 5th gear. Gonna order a JPM coachworks black w/red stitching shift boot to match the seats. Looks off with the plain factory boot.

We will individually investigate once 4 weeks has passed. There are too many on the list to dig into each one. Again, it came down to supply, If you're the 3rd black 5spd knob on the list and we only get 2 in stock, yours will be delayed. Anarchy Motive is doing their best to supply the knobs as quickly as possible, so please be patient.

Checked the mail late last night and there it was! I put it on this morning and drove to work with it....amazing. I've drove with a few different knobs and this Is by far the best feel.

Thanks guys!
