    Wouldn't that be a warranty issue? Or are you looking to change the knob anyway?

    I would be open to changing it if there was an option to do so

    What about this? http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/er...l#.VZ58Oza1aJc

    I know, it may not be the most beautiful one on the market, but for 25 $ it's not too bad I bought something like this for my old Toyota Echo. You can tighten it with a side-screw, it won't move. The only downside was that the aluminum was getting pretty cold in the winter. Don't forget your driving gloves!

    If warranty and the side screw are not an option.
    Then ... Get a m10x1.25 ( i believe ) tap and die and thread the shift stem.
    Thats the big secret. Thread it yourself. Or pay someone to thread it.

    The more expensive choice is to buy the nismo quick shift, with adaptor,and knob.
    ( maybe just nismos adaptor and knob, ill find the link)
    If you do thread the factory shaft, id be so jelly.
    You got balls. Im making everything 100% returnable to stock.

    Just get yourself a m10x1.25 die. It cost me 7 bucks on ebay and about 20 mins to thread mine. I'm actually picking up a Guinness Draft tap handle that I'm going to tap out to use as a shift knob.

    thread right through the knurling. It's pretty easy. Make sure to use some tapping wax or some lube. makes the job easy. It's just a little tricky to get started. I'd say it's about a 1.5/10 difficulty.
