That is the only downside. It gets hot in Vegas heat. It cools down after a couple minutes with one of the AC vents aimed straight at it though. It doesn't get too cold in winter though.

Well yours is my favorite in the thread by far. I would love one especially for the weight but think the aluminum wouldn't match my interior unfortunately

Thanks!
Dont you have cf wrapped trim? I think it'll go well with it. There are so many options for knobs, its insane. One of my all time favorite knobs is the UUC RK6A-L

BTW if anyone has one in pristine condition, I'll trade.

Yeah I'm looking to try and reduce some of the notchy-ness and am happy with the height of the OEM M-Sport knob. Was just wondering if ZHP makes that much of a different or if one of the stainless options is more worth it? Thoughts? Would like some input to smooth out the shift action, thanks!
