the factory shift **** is more than adequate but there are many options out there, check Walmart's selection, I'm sure you could get some more aesthetically appealing pedal covers while you're at it.

I hate to detract from this thread with a productive answer, but... I've had voodoo shift ***** on the last few cars I've owned. They sit a good bit lower than stock and are reasonably priced. http://www.teamvoodoo.com/Voodoo/Retailers.html

So, you're looking for comfort and yet you don't want a ***** on the end of your shifter.

I'm confused.

Go outside, and find a small rock that's approximately the shape and size you are looking for. Drill a hole in it and mount it on the end of the shifter.



Can't find a good rock? You can buy one (pre-drilled) from this company: http://rocknob.com/store/index/category/37/rocknobs

Haven't had any fingerprints on my right hand for a few years now.

Voodoo seems reasonable and those rock ones are not bad to be honest.

You know my parents have this really nice cuboard my dad built with stone handles, just some smooth river rocks glued to threaded metal post, and they fall off every 6 months.

Tried to drill though them, no luck with anything.

Then it would be loose.

If if fell off completely, then it would follow a trajectory described by the combined forces of gravity and inertia relative to acceleration. So, for example, if it fell of while you were accelerating and turning right, then it would fall into your lap. If it fell off while you were braking and turning left, it would fall down into the area of the passenger footwell. If it fell off while you were sliding sideways on your roof, then it would fall "up" (relative to your local frame of reference) and come to rest on the underside of the top of the car. Etc.

On the face of it, this seems like a relatively simple concept.
