Weighted leather shift knobs?

Does anyone know of any leather, weighted shift knobs out there that work with our Zs? I am running a Team Voodoo pearl ball knob right now, but I think

Default Weighted leather shift knobs?

Does anyone know of any leather, weighted shift knobs out there that work with our Zs?

I am running a Team Voodoo pearl ball knob right now, but I think I need a little more heft, and I miss the feel of leather.

If I can't find one in leather, I think I'll just end up getting a A6 Leopard from TWM (A6 Leopard Shift Knobs - TWM Performance Weighted Shift Knobs).

On that note... I'm guessing an upholstery shop could wrap one of those knobs in leather, no?

I'm pretty sure you can get a shop to leather wrap the knob. As far as the knob goes, I put it on with the B&M short shifter three weeks ago and I love the feel.

A6 Leopard? Which finish did you get?

I got the satin finish with the etching on the ball. This is the only pic I have though. Its sort of dark because its from my iphone. I can take higher res. pics later tonight if you'd like.

Awesome -- looks like you have the same finisher I do.

If you could get a lighter pic up that'd be great, but if not don't worry about it. I was thinking about either satin or the stainless look, as I don't think the mirror finish would go with our interior.

I was debating between those two finishes as well. I chose satin because most of the interior of the car has mostly satin type look. If you go with the stainless, post up some pics.

Haha, awesome! Man, I just wish the Team Voodoo knob was as heavy as the TWM. I think this one is only 175 grams where the TWM is a little over 450.
