    I hate dealing with the extremely hot/cold shifter handle.

    i have that one and a pro 5.0 shifter in san antonio and it gets very hot. I keep my stock shift knob in my glove compartment and if i am away for a while ill put the stock one on and put the bullitt one somewhere under something or if it gets to hot to drive with ill put the stock one on too.

    Hamburger buns for feeding the fish at the park, a club decal I've yet to put on, and the box the knob came in.

    I went with the stock 2005-06 stock premium knob on my 04 GT.....I think it goes really well with the silverish center dash and shifter surround. Looks good, good control, comfortable, and doesnt get too hot or too cold;)

    It looks much better ON the shifter........

    The potential for 3rd degree burns is what turned me away from the bullitt style knobs.

    I have the MGW T-Handle.. doesn't get too hot or too cold. The aluminum plate on top with the running pony is effected by the heat, but hasn't ever gotten too hot.

    i have the regular black knob on my 05, and it gets hotter than a mofo in the summer. i throw a micrfiber towel over it in the summer. hope that one does not do the same.

    tim, that knob looks good, but isnt that $$ coming from the new gears fund?? :nono:

    It's because of the shiny plastic part covering the H-pattern. How does the IUP shift knob feel in the summer?

    That shift knob looks great Tim! Remember if you are screwing an aluminum shift knob onto an aluminum shaft you must use antiseize.
