WTB: 5 Speed Shift Knob for 97 986

Anyone know where I can find a good shift knob for my 97 Boxster?

I have the original one on my car now and would like a sleeker looking one.

Anyone put a MOMO or aftermarket knob on? If so, was the installation hard?

Some knobs have a set screw and some have a compression fitting which basically you just pull off.

You can tell either way by feeling at the base of your knob for a screw protruding under the leather boot.

I went through the same thing. I couldn't find any after-market ones that would fit my car (I'm sure they are out there) so I had to go Porsche.
