Re: horrible GEAR KNOB!!!

I quite like the more subtle Momo ones. You can get some with brushed ally/steel and black leather. Replaced the standard leather GTV one with one of those, nice to keep it a bit Italian and brand matching with the leather too... That would be my recommendation.

Maybe something like this?

Only thing with that is the cap on the top is plastic - fine until it scratches...

Re: horrible GEAR KNOB!!!

yeah, i wanna see the bling one too.

agreed about MOMO. i like them. i fitted a Race full leather (as opposed to lower half aluminium) version in my 155 to replace a bling one from the previous owner!

Ooooo, now that does fit well with the existing aesthetic, do they do a lift up version?

The one on mine is a bit scabby, previous owners must have worn rings

in the Race series, they have a leather-aluminium 'short' version. i think these are meant to suit lift-up-reverse-ring cars:
