Jaffster Shift Knob

Installed a Jaffster shift knob from Bimmerworld. Easy install and works great for me. Just need a good SSK now. Quick and dirty iPhone pics:

Was your goal to get a shorter shift? Because from the pics, to me, it looks like it is taller than the stock knob.

Yes, it is taller (6"). Goal was to get it higher and a closer reach to my hand.

You got it right. As the knob is taller shifts are just a tad bit more forward and rearward. Not a big deal for me but planning on installing a Rouge SSK once prototyping is finished and they begin production.
