In Reply to: Titanium gear Shift report. posted by Gideon Archer on April 19, 2000 at 01:16:06:

It's shorter than stock and retails for $80 (Part #82-23-9-405-686, but Cutter Motors sold it for $63.25).

I don't know the feel of the titanium shift knob (as I missed the last autocross that the Gideon was at). But I suspect the round titanium knob must feel pretty good.

I don't know if my shift knob is the same height or taller, but it's shorter than the stock shift knob and my guess is that it might be a little taller than the titanium shift knob.

But it feels great. So, here's my opinions:

Is it cool? I think so.

Is it worth Sending $$$ on? Yes, at the sacrifice of losing the shift knob illumination (Though Lester pointed out that it can be done, I've just been lazy to do it).

Is it worth $63.25? Yes, since the original illuminated shift knob retails around $90 (I think)
