Better than OEM shift knob: Super-Klasse

Came across this while looking for a new shift knob to go with my CubeSpeed short shifter (coming in Dec!):

https://super-klasse.com/products/runabout-shift-knob



It's a reproduction of a JDM MR2 shift knob, but designed to be double the weight of OEM, and customizable with different stiching

I just installed it on my IS300 - can confirm it fits, and DEFINITELY feels heavier. Its personal preference, i suppose, but i really like the feel of a heavier shifter.

I had OEM and a TRD leather ball shaped shift knob:

The TRD sticker kept coming off and it felt way too light.

The Super Klasse one has an immensely better feel. Not too expensive, either!

Nice. On the MR2 the shifter never felt anything like the IS300 even after upgrading bushings and whatnot, but that is just how it is designed. I have a few of these and might try them on the IS to play around with how it feels.

I have the TRD one right now and it feels nice.
