And then there's.....that....shift knob.

Step up to an RX-8 5spd knob. Rotary Performance sells them. Do it.

Price and link (or is it a phone in and ask sort of deal)?

lol, I was looking for it in the wrong location (FC and SE) Thanks! I'll probably pick that up in the not-to-distant future (after I get the car up and running).

Hey! Its pretty sweet! And it goes great with my Rx-8 seats! And I get to touch my knob while I drive!

But seriously... We all have our things that we spend money on that don't make the most sense. (If you paid full price) You paid $70 for that carbon fiber shifter surround thing and who knows how much for the carbon fiber trim panel. It doesn't add any functionality... you just think it looks better.... Potato. Potato.

Yep, and worth every penny. When I bought mine (around 5 years ago) the only way to get a 5spd RX-8 knob was to get one from Europe. They were in the $250 range. Others were rocking 6spd knobs in a 5spd car, which is lame as balls.

The weight and feel of it was awesome. I miss it, and will probably buy another for the FB.

Here's a pic of when it was in my FC with new shift boots.





Take note, this is with a short throw shifter installed as well.

I had one of those badboys on my FC, then I became an elitist and put a 6spd in the FC, so now I rock a 6-spd knob in the FC and the 5Spd knob is enjoyed daily in my Mighty XJ

That is implying that you paid $250. I think they're worth it... don't know if I'd pay it though.

I think you're too close to Canada. $250 is expensive for a shift knob, cheap for your mom.

Not sure, since it isn't JDM, but rather EDM
