Best looking automatic shift knobs?
 
I am looking to swap out the one I currently have. I have seen a few different ones in pictures on here. Looking for something that goes well with the interior. I am going to re-do the headliner in black. I have tan interior, black mats, aluminum trim.

Side note : Wish I got a manual :(

how about a wooden shift knob like the one i have. i think it looks better than leather but mine has cracks on it. ;(

Don't spend more than $10 on a new knob. Just buy a can of spray enamel and go to town. Looks very good.

Mine is doing the same thing... I'm sure this years heatwave isn't helping it either.

^ +1, I'm planning to wrap my wooden trim with aluminum accent with the 3m 1080 stuff, will wrap my knob with it too.

Sweetness 07-08-2012 07:28 PM

if you spend more than $20 on a knob, you are a fool! Or really wealthy...

Definitely the nicest. But pretty spendy (with the shift boot, which of course I would get as well)..

I also like this kind :

Where can I get something similar? I have seen something like that on a few of the cars on here.

That's an F30 automatic shift knob. To put it in park, you push a button. Just another thing that will go wrong after 60,000 miles... :tsk:
