Mazdaspeed wood look shift knob.

A shift knob that looks like laquered hardwood, with yellow 5-speed shift pattern on the top. The front is ribbed leather and the bottom is a silver ring. The logo of mazdaspeed in white outline goes up the passenger side. It looks very tasteful and not the slightest bit ricey. I installed it in a car that already had wood trim installed. The wood feels like plastic or like heavily lacquered wood and is a bit darker and nicer looking than the dealer wood trim package. I would have to say it is one of the better looking wood shift knobs out there. It feels comfortable and doesnt get hot or cold like a metal knob.

MazdaSpeed Aluminum/Carbon shift knob

Great looking shift red aluminum and carbon knob to go with a matching brake handle. MazdaSpeed logo on the side.

Actually got the knob last January direct from MazdaSpeed in Japan. The knob worked great until the heat of summmer caused the carbon sleeve to come loose and spin on the knob. I am getting another knob like it this year and will add to the review once I have given MS another chance.

Mazdaspeed Leather Shift knob

Black leather shift knob. 5-speed pattern on top, Mazdaspeed logo up the back.

Very good. High quality piece. I could do without the Mazdaspeed logo, but whatever. Stands a good deal taller than the stock knob, but I got used to that. Direct installation (screw-on). Gives a more solid feel for shifting than the M2 knob I had before, and better looking. Purchased from Corksport for about $60. Recommended.

Mazdaspeed Wood Shift Knob for the M1 and M2 Miata from Cork Sport http//

Saw it on Cork Sports web page and immediately feel in love with it. Pics can be found under the "General Parts" section on their web page. Cost $48 + shipping.

A very well constructed shifter with a rubber grip in the front of the shifter. The Yellow Mazdaspeed logo is a nice touch on the side as well as the gear pattern on top. Color is a dark brown burl, but will match any interior. Fits in the hand nicely and is similar to any of the Mk. II Rx-7 shifters out there in size.

I like it so much that my polished Sola Knob is taking a break.

Mazdaspeed Carbon Fiber Shift Knob

Easy to remove old shift knob. Easy to install new shift knob.

The Mazdaspeed Carbon Fiber Shift Knob is a lightweight wonderful piece of equipment that no Miata owner should be without. It looks great! It weighs quite a bit less the the original Miata shift knob. It fits my hand perfectly. It is no taller than the original shift knob. After you remove your original shift knob and realize how heavy it is, compared to the Mazdaspeed knob, you'll be convinced. This is one of the few additions to your Miata that is: inexpensive(59.95 plus shipping from Moss), will be used constantly, and great looking.

A slick gear black, stitched, leather shift knob from Mazdaspeed, made in Japan

It was easy taking off the old shift knob and putting on the new one. Less than a minute. If you take more than that, you are probably just taking the time to admire a perfectly designed gear shift knob.

This was the best shifter knob I've bought in the past 3 years. I've tried black leather razo, momo shadow (?) carbon fibre/leather knob, and aluminum razos, but they all fail for either not having a "perfect fit", making light rattles, or just not giving a confident feeling.

This knob, though I think it was designed originally for the final generation Rx7, works perfectly on the miata (M1 in my case). Its heavier than the stock wheel, and taller, but it feels really good when you cup it with your hands. my shifting feeling is stronger now than ever before. But, this knob is not cheap though. Probably at least around US$65-70 when converted from the yen.
