Where can I find Wood Keyless Shift Knob?

Hey Guys,

I am in the proccess of getting a lot of my interior pieces wrapped in real carbon fiber. The only thing is, my shift knob is the gray one with alcantra around it, the company I'm working with obviously cant wrap that and will need a wood one so that they can do the work on that one.

Anyone know where I can get one or maybe there is somone out there that wants to trade me their wood grain one for my alcantra one out of the SL55?

Thanks Guys

I'd give you mine if I still had it...I already gave it away. I like what Olin is showing you above though...looks sportier.

This seems to be the same thing in wood but sorta reversed?...Does anyone know how this works? I doubt it clips over the stock knob..I called PP and amazingly no one knew and never called me back..

It could be a cheap alternative to CF or Wood..but I dont think the OEM keyless shift knob comes apart at all??

Yes thats the one, and it replaces the stock alcantera section. Its made in Germany . You pull the knob off and replace the parts and put a little spot of silicone on the insidde where the stock has the drop of glue
then put it togather and slide it back on

Thanks a bunch for the Help, I will go with this one and get this ordered ASAP. My interior trim pieces are getting send out to my new sponsor this coming week and I will post pictures as soon as they are done along with the knob. The only thing I have to work on now is my steering wheel options.

I had DCT do mine and Im satisfied with it. Theres several different options you can have done to it. Its very good quality. I put the paddles on it.

^^^ Your interior looks great. I like the wheel a lot. I want to go with one that is cut at the bottom and has a straight line. In carbon just like yours. How hard was it to make the paddles?

They can make it flat bottom. And they do the paddle conversion too. It is a hard job, I would recommend having them do it.

How long did it take for you to get yours in, from the time of order? How do you like it compared to the old one you use to have?
