Aftermarket Shift Knobs

Anyone have suggestions on aftermarket shiftknobs? I know that the stock shift knob has the boot hooked up to it. If you replace the shiftknob with an aftermarket one how does the boot hold up? Anyone have pics of a Momo or something like that on their 05 or 06?

BTW, i saw the hurst ball and its cool, but i'm looking for something in a leather wrapped with chrome or silver.

i went with the Pomello Sphere Leather..
i couldn't find it on their site tho
very similar to the sphere as per their site

smaller ball type with a single chrome ring and chrome cap
drops it nicely to where it "might" almost feel like a short-shifter
makes it easier to find 3rd

sorry, been playing with the wife's civic again (women and their shows cars...sheesh, now she wants a 15" in the dash) so haven't had a chance to take any pics let alone mess with my boot yet

2005 GT Premium,torch red, all available factory options.
Performance mods: Lets just say it's not stock.

Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing. But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

This IntelliTXT stuff sucks.

i paid $65 Canadian at a store i deal with near Toronto
$80 US seems pretty steep IMO..

as for the boot....
put boot on w/o knob installed as if installing it into center console..
install knob..
pull boot over knob as if turning it inside out and slap a plastic tie on there nice and tight..
pull boot down again as if installing it..

i'll take a couple more pics tomorrow in case my destructions aren't followable


i was looking at a pistol grip as well originally, but the height of them took away from the artificial short-shifter feel
