    i'd have to agree, standard gearknobs are shite.. especially when the leathers worn like mine!

    will definitely be getting a clubsport gearknob soon, just struggling to justify £45 for a gearknob!

    could be worse mind, you ought to see the state on the plastic gearknob in my mrs' fiesta.. now thats proper plastic shite!

    Mine's worn off. I've just tried too pull it off but bloody hell it's stuck on well hard.

    £45 for gearknob isn't too bad. I've seen MOMO knobs go for £50+rrp.
    My previous car was a Civic Type-R and the amount of people pay three figures for some flashy JDM knobs was alarming.

    I've been fancying a new knob for ages, but the reports on this forum about it taking three men and a crane to yank the old one off puts me in fear of doing damage.
