replacing shift knob on an automatic

i think the stock automatic shift knob looks sooo lame. i want to replace it with a BMW style shifter.. u kno, the one where the trigger button is on the front rather than on the side. is this possible?

Hey bullet I was at the dealer on 6/2 and lookin at the civic shifter, it seems to be able to fit but the screws where the shifter screw in for the civic will not line up with the accord screw holes, so there woudl be some sort of gap which woudl show jsut a metal rod...I dont think it would look as nice as it does on the civic, heres another shifter to check out, the toyota celica shifter for AT, it would work but once again how will it look comestically...otherwise why are we lookin to change the shifter in the first plcae....

Is it hard to replace the stock shift knob with an aftermarket one? I'm looking at the Razo RA94 shift knob right now. http://www.cardomain.com/item/RAZRA94
Do I just have to unscrew the stock shift knob and bolt on the auto shift knob?

Yes

All you have to do is unscrew the screw(s), slide the shifter up and out.

Align the new one, screw in the bolts and your done. A 10-15 minute job.
