Was there a lot of negative feedback on the old shifter knob? I kind of like the old way personally, gives it a little more style

Is the 07 knob made out of some sort of plastic/vinyl?

I have no complaints with aluminum over plastic any day.

Thanks Rick. Not a bad change per se, but think I prefer the original look.

no, it's a clear coated textured aluminum. The new one looks to be just a 'smooth' un-textured version:thumbsup:

ONE OTHER QUICK COMMENT & NOTE: I noticed a different FEEL to the 6 speed manual as I filled it up for our customer….not talking of the shifting, JUST THE FEEL of the 6 speed shifter..so I measured the 2007 vs. the 2008 and I was right. The 2008 is about a 1/2″ taller than the 2007. For what it is worth for you folks…..:huh:

Well I'm 6'6" tall and a taller shifter will most likey help me out alot. Just hope the throws aren't longer (not that shifter hight and throws go hand and hand).

The polka-dots on the shift knob bothered me so much that I installed a smooth aluminum knob on my '05 and then my '06. Still had to live with the polka-dot finish on the left and right door pushbuttons (they match the shift knob). Now I can order 2008 door pushbuttons and have a smooth, dot-free interior!
