If you can find a Autoexe knob used, I like mine. New, they're over $100, which I think is a rip off.
Got it for $45/shipped on Ebay.
Here's a bad pic of it:

If you change it, get something heavier. There is a GB going on for a custom shift knob for the Mazda6 (and speed6) right now. It's a really nice heavy knob! Link.

EDIT: Oh, and it's threaded for our shifters, so you won't need any shims or mounting screws.

TWM knobs are all that I've ever rocked. I love em. Subtle but heavily weighted and definitely aftermarket.

Mine, pictured below, has been powder coated gloss black.

Only thing with metal knobs is that they get hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

TWM knobs come threaded for their shifters...no idea if it's the same as the OEM thread.

I bought an aftermarket one but switched back to the OEM ONE. I removed the leather off the original and like the way it looks black. Anyone else try this ?
