Saw these Sparco knobs which I thought are nice....

Available in other colors, including all black...it's the Litium SV and will work with lift-reverse.

I know Richbrook makes a "ball type" similar to the Lotus one, though getting a 2nd degree burn during the summer tends to make me hesitant. I have an all metal one in my Mustang, and I thought the shift pattern engraved into it was getting burned into my hand like that guy in Raiders of the Lost Ark!

what other alternatives are there, and if you have a different one, could you post a pic? If you have a metal one, I'd like to see those too, I'd make the burning hand sacrifice for the coolness factor :2guns: Don't leave out the brand if you know it!

The MOMO Race knob "with reverse" works

http://www.eraceparts.com/item.jhtml;$...mp;PRID=1514028

it holds on with a set screw (grub screw) which isn't the most elegant, but easy to install and remove.

Looks good in my Friends 89 Esprit.

It's a standard Momo from Halfords as I recall. The Lotus logo was a pin badge withe the pin cut off - fits perfectly where the Momo logo went.

Don't look at the dirt.....!

Hi,

They do thes ones in Maplins that light up!

Light up gear knob!

It's either something you like or dislike, but the knob is a nice design, so you could always take the batteries out if you don't want it to light up, cheap as well! Apparently it works on lift up gear knobs as well!

I just received a Momo knob in the mail (ordered on eBay). Does this look like typical Momo quality? The badge isn't central and the area around it looks tarnished (or perhaps discoloured from excess glue).

 

Thanks

Ian.
