Yeah, that's the only thing...

Go below, and click on the blue question mark next to Aluminum Gear Knob to see a side pic...

I wonder if you have to buy the whole assembly, or if the knob unscrews? I think it unscrews, but I could be wrong.

Diablo seems to be the Elise expert, so maybe he knows. wink

Probably cheaper to have a machine shop make you one.

it's the same tranmissions as the celica, but I'd be VERY surprised if it was the same linkage type system...since the cables have to run to the rear of the car.

Hideous shift knob though in a Celica, there isn't any AL in the interior...

The stock GTS knob looks better.

Well, I painted my Center Console, and the plastic surrounding the shifter black, so I wanted something round and chrome looking for a shifter, and was leaning towards the B&M shifter, but since I saw this one, I have to have it. Kinda matches the pedals if you look at the car from the outside.

But anyways, if anyone knows any more info about this knob, and if it will fit in our car, please post here. Thanks.

metal shift knobs get VERY Hot during the summer time when getting in your car after being parked during the day.

^^ ditto.

i have the b&m knob (on my b&m shifter) and it's been pretty much untouchable for any period of time over 2 seconds since it's summer now.

it's not all THAT bad though...but then again don't even think about driving with your hand on the knob

I would bet my $1 on Lotus using the same size diameter shifter rod as in the celica, however, I could be wrong.

You'd have to get a look at underneath the shift boot to figure it out.

have you thought of painting the numbers on your shift knob with silver paint?

I did that to mine, makes a ton of difference

the top view looks cool showing all the gears, but the side view is nasty...

My car is garaged at work and home, and when I'm out, I always try and do the same.

As for painting in the numbers, I was kinda just looking for a nice metal shifter.
