The leather and aluminum on the S2000's shift knob has been scratched up since I got the car. I’m generally OK with patina and not super anal about these things, but the central location and the fact that it’s the first thing I see getting in has always bothered me.

I had planned to get a Moddiction Anvil 2, in the same shape as the stock knob, but titanium and countersunk. Unfortunately they claim that their Ti supply chain is not working. After waiting a year, I finally gave up, and ordered a factory accessory titanium knob from Honda. It’s slightly heavier than stock.
