I installed a new gearshift knob I picked up on eBay from China for $7.50. It's a little smaller than the OEM but I like the faux perforated leather, has a nice feel to it. Had to modify how the gearshift boot attached to the knob, the OEM has this black plastic collar that is held on by a c-clip, that wouldn't fit around the new one so I just used a zip tie. The photo also shows the carbon fiber surround I installed. I don't know about you guys but the glare I was getting off the chrome one from the sun at certain times of the day was really annoying.

Can you provide a link to that shift knob? I kind of like the look and love that it won't show prints like the stock unit.

What about that CF shift surround? Glare from the chrome is brutal at times.

It's a cover over the chrome one. Pretty easy to install and is a very good fit.

Looks Great!! Am i the only one annoyed by the buttons/knock-outs just in front of the gear shift. I have the Buick Sportback preferred II ... so none of those are actually buttons for anything for me ... kind of wish they just replaced the whole thing with a solid piece .. as I keep wanting to push buttons that aren't actually buttons :)
