Yeah - 2nd the vote for JapanParts.com. You'll receive it in 10-14 days and the price is competitive. I got the same knob from them and like it a lot.

STiDayDreamin',

Did your titanium shift knob have a polished base with the STi logo?

Thanks,

~JB

Hey JB - no sweat man - happy to help (or try to, anyway). The one I rec'd is identical to the pic....there's a lower section that juts back out from the indent - I'm guessing that's the part you're asking is polished or not? I don't recall thinking the metals finish is any diff't on any particular sections....the entire thing is a smooth Ti...not as polished as some Ti stuff I've seen (for biking) but certainly not rough....has a little texture but is still smooth to the touch. There wasn't an STi logo anywhere on the knob, but it did come with stickers that wrap around the lower section of it (4 of them in different color schemes) and a blue shift pattern indicator sticker. Is this what you were asking??? It's definitely NOT polished to a mirror shine or anything.....

See the section under the reverse lockout ring that looks polished in the pics? That's where the STi stickers are supposed to be affixed, and I don't believe that portion is significantly diff't in its' finish than the rest of the knob. HTH.

Cool, that's the answer I was looking for. I recently purchased an STi knob and it came with the same sticker pack. I thought, however, that they were suppose to come with a polished base with the sti logo instead of the sticker.

Look at this page:

http://www.rallispec.com/product-shifter.htm

The description says: "Machined titanium shift knob with STi logo at polished base. Perfect OEM fit. Complete with shift pattern decal."

I was just making sure I didn't get a replica because there is no sti logo fixed to a polished base.

Weight wise, how does the TI knob compare to the stock leather?

My experience is that if it is heavier, it usually provide a slightly smoother shift.

Good good. Glad I was of some help, anyway. You'll like the knob....lowers overall shifter height by 1/4-1/2", feels great in your palm, and looks sweet to top it off. It gets fairly cold in New England wintertime temps, but I don't recall it getting too hot in the summer. And that's the same exact knob too.

And Hp12C - the Ti shifter is 5-6x heavier (if not more TBH)....it seems to be machined from a solid piece of titanium, where the stocker is just leather, and hollow on the inside.

WhiteRabbit - I sold my stock knob a week or two after installing the Ti one for $65 to a fellow forum member. Sorry.
