leathery knob – Stylish Aluminum + Leather Car Shift Gear Knob (Black + Red) Reviews

posted by Lhum54 on 09/19/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
works seems clean (doesn't collect/build-up dirt from hand) flat top to rest palm thumb grove on top left side for gripping (i don't use this grove) this would be bad for right-side drivers
Cons:
comes with 3 screws and not 4 as in photo (only needs 3) black tubes are very fragile black tubes makes the knob too tall if you use the tubes, the knob is not fastened to the level and will spin (doesn't sit, facing forward) the seams are sharp in the beginning, but after 2 months, they'll smooth out
Other:
i tried to cut the tube to size because the knob was too tall, it broke. instead, i just used masking tape on the level and screwed into the tape. this worked better than the tube because it's very secure on tape and doesn't allow the knob to spin around i like the leathery feel of this item. my previous one was metal and it would be burning hot or ice cold over the seasons
Bottomline:
love the price. knobs in stores here go for $60 to +$100 and all it is, is some name brand that no one who enters my car would ever recognize
