GR Shift knob

I got a car with a GR shift knob and @fredzy asked me about it. I don't remember m/any photos of that shift knob here, so decided to start a new thread.

Here's how it looks:



It's not "weighted", it doesn't alter how shifting works; it just changes what you material/shape you feel when you shift. The diameter of the knob is pretty ergonomic and feels pretty good in my hand.
Initially I thought it's just a gimmick and was thinking about selling/swapping it with someone who wants it, but now I'm starting to get used to it and kinda like it.

Nice haha, yeah I like the look. Just that little bit more Porsche-ish. I actually want to get one separate so I can use the stock 86 knob to replace my WRX’s. It’s got some scratches that have always bothered me. I can’t even remember how they got there. Then again that’s like part of the cars character now..

Looks like of like a butthole to me

In all seriousness it looks like a reworked TRD shift knob that was available on the first gens

I like it. I actually wanted one of these with mine, but beggars can't be choosers and the car that got allocated to my dealer did not have one these so
