Finally did it; Momo Shift Knob + OEM boot

*Edit 1*Fixed my center panel sticking out with double sided tape and super glue. Should hold.

*Edit 2*Changed the photos again, made it so the double sided tape doesn't show on the boot..looks better.

I finally did it after wanting to for a long time, better late than never. Did anyone else hate cutting the plastic off of the boot?





Love the knob, and it matches the interior perfectly.

Total out of pocket cost:
$0 for Momo Knob (Used $100 Subaru bucks I earned for spending $3333 on my Mastercard.)
$24.17 shipped for OEM shift boot.

Yeah, I probably will cut it soon. I like to lean my arm on the armrest extended though and with it as it is it's perfect right now. I'm sure I would get used to it shorter though, would look nicer as well.

7th gen sedans only come in auto (no choice unfortunately), so that's what I have. I'm stuck in traffic all the time anyway, I'm not complaining.

Thanks, I'm glad it turned out well; looks a thousand times better than before I think.

Any ideas on how to keep the bottom right of my center panel down? I tried 3M double sided tape but that's too weak.

I'll try pounding on it some more tomorrow, I think the clip has nothing to snap into though, seems like a little piece broke off/is missing not on the plate, but the bottom area.

well, they should. idk whay it couldnt even be an option for it to be a manual 6 speed. yes a lot of people might not get it, but still, itd be nice for it to be there incase some people wanted it. on the other hand, i went to my local honda dealer the other day and purchased a oem shift boot, they said that it should be in on friday, i cant wait. ill post a pic for you guys, even tho its a 6th gen, but i was inspired by this thread pretty much. ive thought about it, never acted on it untill i saw this. it just looked so good to me.

yea, thats correct. the reason why sedans dont come with v6/manual is because there is simply not enough market for it. it costs something for honda to produce different models with different options, and it is more economical for them to produce only the models/options that sell in larger quantities. most people who want v6/manual will be looking at coupes instead of sedans. to me, it is a sound business practice. but yea, it still sucks

Cool, what shift knob are you going to use Sketch?

Yeah, they should at least give you the option of a 6 speed, they already have it on the coupe. Shouldn't cost that much more to produce, even if the sales numbers would be low; customer satisfaction after all.

you can wrap tape around the base of the shifter to keep up the boot.

Yeah, the chrome button on top is to move it from park.

Oh, I used 3M double sided tape and super glue to have the panel stick to the car again.

Yeah, I used three layers of 3M double sided tape near the bottom of the knob to keep it together, stays nice and tight, doesn't move. If it's too high you can see it, if it's too low it doesn't work.

I might eventually shorten it, but I like pulling out my armrest and it's perfect in terms of reach.

Here is my MOMO shift knob installed but with shaft cut. I had it like yours over an year and I though it was too long and decided to shortening it last weekend. I am just waiting for OEM shift boot to go with it. Here are my pics:

Yeah, shortening does make it short and stubby like a real 6 speed. Does it make it any harder to get to from the armrest?

It'll look even better once you get your oem shift boot.

liked it longer IMO. the 6spd boot seemed to fit better and you didnt have to hide the bottom part of the knob. if you havent done it yet, keep it longer. it is an auto so there really is no need for performance shifting and cutting leverage points...
