Good looking knob.

Just realised that didn't sound great - but you know what I mean.

I think I initially liked the concept of it but the more I look at it the worse it gets. It just seems like it's trying too hard to make the DCT look like a manual. The shift boot doesn't help...

I am thinking of keeping the boot cover and putting my carbon shifter back on

Please add some pics of that combo. Maybe itís a combination of the knob and the boot that looks weird but the OEM knob might look ok with the boot?

Too much red there I think. Might look better with a black coin.

Switched the red with black anodized
Let me know if you're looking for a red one I can sell it at a great discount. You can always repaint it
You would need the boot cover and set of screws which can be purchased through the company like I bought the shifter separately from them

Ordered it last friday and it arrived yesterday.

Very very nice quality and changes the look of the center console completely.

The color I choose may not be for everyone but suits my taste just fine.

Hey I was thinking about purchasing this. How is the Alcantara holding up? Does it get worn down quick?

Went for the Black Forest Industries GS2 shift knob in black alcantara/black anodize as well and the black alcantara boot with the straight M Motorsport stitch. Also, slapped on a Rush Customs CF DCT Trim panel. Had it on for about 2 months, my wife & I are loving it.

Didnít go for a all metal knob as I dread touching/holding onto a hot shift knob on hot summer days.
