I know that a lot of people don't consider a shift knob to be of any importance on their list of things to do to a car, but I consider it pretty much essential as I have yet to drive a vehicle with a row-your-own transmission where I was completely satisfied with the stock knob. Whether it's from the shape and feel to the height or weight, I've never liked one. With my last manual transmission vehicle, a 2008 Honda Civic Si, I stumbled upon TWM Performance in my search, sprang for it and fell absolutely in love. I didn't even look anywhere else when I got home with my R and sat down to order parts.
In the case of my Civic, I chose the M1 Abrams, but for the R I picked the A6 Leopard because of the added neck at the bottom. These knobs weigh over a pound, so you can pretty much just flick it into gear, even without a short shift kit. I chose the graphite finish with the pattern engraved, and it matches the R interior quite well.
Everything needed for this specific installation is included with the exception of the Allen key required for the base.
