This shift knob is the perfect size for fast shifting. I have a short shifter and this feels great with it; as it compliments the aggressiveness of my race clutch and shifter perfectly. The color is very nice, not washed out and the material is not slippery at all. I enjoy that the sticker comes separately in the package.. so if it is not desired it does not have to be there. I have an E46 M3 and with an adapter that is sold on this website it looks great!
