It's possible you could swap it for another oem shift knob (might have to do some trimming) or you can do the SPP Tip Mod and put whatever you want.

You can buy the SPP Mod here: http:

Get the shift knob off the RS6, it's clean and frankly that MOMO one looks like garbage if you ask me.

so this would work with just about any shift knob? manual or auto knob?

SPP Tip Mod lets you put ANY knob shift/tip whatever..

But some knobs will require some modifying since the metal thing under the knob may interfere somewhat or it may not reach up far enough.

the only place that has it priced decently is dth haus: http://shop.dthaus.com/product.sc?productId=222

Part #: 8E1713141AGQPY

BTW you do NOT need the SPP Tip mod for this one, you just have to do some trimming when you install it
