Default Billetworkz Review

First and foremost I have no affiliation with Billetworkz. In my search for a new shift knob for my 15 STi I stumbled across some knobs from Billetworkz.
As I looked at some reviews and their website I realized they were located close to me in Lancaster, PA. I like to support local businesses when I can so I reached out to the company over Facebook. They were very responsive and I mentioned my interest in coming out to see the facility and test fit some products if possible. Austin, the owner, was very nice and accommodating. He said he does not normally have people come out (I wanted to be sure to say this since he can't really have people showing up at his shop since he is not there with regular hours)

So this takes me to last Friday when I arrived at the shop.

The Shop:
Modest place in a nice area of Lancaster. Austin rents a room within the larger shop for his operations. A lot of the equipment used to make his custom shift knobs and other accessories are inside this room. In another section of the shop there are several powder coating guns as he has begun doing that operation in house.




Products:
Shift knobs galore! Pictures online do not do them justice. I had a hard time sticking with the classic white that I went there intending to buy. For a small business I was impressed by the amount of inventory Austin had and all of the different shapes and color designs.



Personal Testing:
I test fit several options including the sphere, lightbulb, and teardrop shapes in white, red, and titanium. I liked the lightbulb the best and bought the white Japanese numbers version. Austin installed it in the car for me and made sure everything was exactly the way I wanted it. Immediately I loved the extra weight and feel on the drive home. I am sure this is something I would like with any weighted knob, the difference for me is in the fit and finish of what Billetworkz provides.


I enjoy doing reviews and taking pictures and will try to put up more reviews on this forum. I have used this forum a lot over the years, but haven't posted much. If anyone likes what I am doing I will keep posting them.
