Shift Knobs, which one?
 
Thinking about getting a new shift knob. So far I'm thinking about getting the Rob Knob 2 or 3. Kinda leaning towards Rob Knob 3. Any other shift knobs I should look into?

thanks

I was planning on getting the ACS chrome/aluminum knob, but the store ended the special.

I like the Victor/Hamann Evo shift knob.

I've just ordered the Stainless Steel Rob Knob Magnum from UUCmotorwerks. I orderedthis one because it's the heaviest knob i could find, 3 times the weight of a normal RK Magnum! I'll let you guys know how it feels when it arrives. One of the more expensive 'little' mods though, ran me $155 plus shipping.

Does the weight make a difference in feel? is the RK3 going to be heavier then stock?

The weight makes it easier to shift. This is especially true when you install a SSK which makes shifting effort a little higher.
Check out:

for a more technical description of why this is so.

I love my RKII magnum in brushed alum. Goes great with the titanium trim that I have. :thumbup:

I have the Stainless Steel Rob Knob II and I love it. If you have a SSK you're better off getting the Stainless Steel Knob. The extra weight makes up for the extra force required to shift. It almost shifts itself with the Stainless Steel Knob.

bender, I have an ACS chrome/aluminum knob for sale, PM me if you interested :smile:

I have Hamann EVO
 
It looks good and the feel is good. But it can't give u the feel of those heavy shift knob.

If you go for EVO, then you should go to Bavarians.com (can't quite remember how it spells). ~$30-40 cheaper than here ;)

sycE46 04-29-2002 01:10 PM

Okay... I think i have my heart set on the RK3 in brush aluminum. I don't have a short shifter, so I don't think I need the extra weight other finishes.

Should I get M stripe or just the UUC logo? Are the gear patterns caps the same as bmw OEM? (if I wanted to get an M stripe cap later)

thanks
