    What is everyones take on these shift knobs? I am on the verge of building a shift knob for my S5. My cars exterior color is silver with black leather interior, I am also planning on putting gunmetal wheels on the car so I am trying to figure what combination to do, or to just keep it classy and leave the OEM knob in?
