Late last summer, I decided to change my car’s shift knob. Went with the Raceseng Ashiko in Texture Graphite because...
1) of Raceseng’s solid reputation overall, figuratively and literally (the Ashiko is 1.62 lbs. / 735 grams of 303 Stainless Steel).
2) I thought the Ashiko’s angular form echos the 2nd-gen CTS’s designed-with-a-ruler exterior.
3) it is the heaviest of the shift knobs they offer, which is desireable; plus, my car being the heavyweight that it is at over 4300lbs, ought to be able to handle it.
4) I thought the Texture Graphite finish matches well with the Suede Steering Wheel + Shift Knob option which my car came with from the factory, so it will be essentially OEM+.
Here is the result.
