Its not the end of the world. Just have a sock or a wristband handy and keep it covered if the car is going to sit in the sun for a while. IMO a heavier shift knob is essential for a more positive shifting experience. The benefits far outweigh the negative.Man I would like a heavy metal shift knob but even my stock SI knob burns my hands....I can't imagine what an all metal one would do.
Oem red stitching!. They r only like 30 or so bucks.
And I have a carbon fiber rep plastic shift knob that weighs almost nothing but I love how it feels when shifting. Really gotta throw it in. But since I got my exedy oe clutch replacement and updated cmc and smc shifting is like butter with even the non weighted shift knob
