shift knob...opinions needed
Not really celica related frown

I have a b&m short shifter that does not allow for standard shift knobs to fit, so I am having a custom one made. The first picture is the one im having made (photoshopped). My question is which insert to you prefer...the color enamel one or the aluminum one?

or

There has been mixed opinions...some love the all aluminum, others think the enamel one adds color.

Opinions would be greatly appreciated!
