M10 , but you can fit the knob on a M12 e,g if you bought a short shifter just force it on or drill out

better off drilling the h out to 10.5 and taping the 12mm thread

ok, thanks for the replies, does anyone know the pitch

basically ive bought a short shifter from the states and it 12x1.75 and i was hoping the xr knob may fit it as im fitting a ba gear boot to the car (xg ute) and sort of wanted everything to like factory modified if that makes sense

cheers

Drill size for metric is ... Thread size minus pitch = drill dia. ie M12x1.75 = 10.25mm drill.

it's acturly a 10.20 drill, how ever 10.5 will work fine
