that is a nice MOMO F16 brushed aluminium with red leather knob..

installation was 1 on the trusty 1-10 scale..

about 15 mins with a beer..

most of the time was opening the beer the stupid ring snapped off and I had to find a sscrewdriver the open it then a clean glass..

anyway here are some happysnaps.

not too offend, but it doesn't really match the interior that well does it? maybe you need an AU Momo red and black wheel now, that might tie it in a bit more.
Nice knob though.

I reckon it looks pretty cool.. but you do need to coordinate - maybe start by updating the factory stereo?

yeah I gotta look at the boot next.. GT ones are about $32 I think..

don't understand how upgraging my stereo will help colour co-ordinate?

besides the factory H/U is an anti-theft device..

the aftermarket one is in the centre console.. 8-)

as far as co-ordinating goes.. it will only be limited to a black GT boot and probably a red and black AU momo wheel down the track..

I don't want a clour scheme to overtake the interior.

starts lookin a bit ricey..

but a few nice touches of momo here and there... mmmm

I like it.
Would look good in silver and gret/black - if thats available.
But the red looks sporty


does it fit on with a thread - or those 3 little screw things?

yeah I could have got silver and black but for another $50.. I got this one at the pre-momo price increase..

even still its not cheap.

it has 3 grub screws to fit.. very simple feels very secure. no movement at all..

Yeah I think it looks a bit out of place, and even with a red and black momo wheel it won't suit.

On the topic of the gear boot, you can use the existing one and spray it with black vinyl spray. I did mine (along with alot of the rest of my interior!) and it came up perfect. Just stick the boot on the end of a broom handle and spin it around while you're spraying it.

Voids is that the height of your actual shifter ?!
Dayum, how do you drive with that!
