Polished ball type shift knob

Gang,

I've had simple, gloss-polished aluminum ball gear shift knobs on most of my manual cars since 1997. For whatever reason, I can't seem to find this for my '02 BS. I'm running a simple $20 Autozone solid aluminum knob now...but really want ball type. The Rennline is OK...but over priced and not polished. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance.

I agree that the Rennline one is a tad overpriced at $95. But is sure good looking.

Here's a Momo shift knob for $79;

Sorry - I just noticed the fine print: For all 928's, 924's, Boxsters, Caymans, Cayennes & 911 variations from Years 1987 -2010 on you will need to modify the shifter to make the knob work. We do not offer a kit that will make this an easy job.
