STS025500180: 95 grams
35022AC030 : 205 grams

Curious to see other user's STS025500180 weigh in here. Cause *tin foil hat* I think crappy leather ones weigh less than good leather ones, meaning bad standards in a production run or fishiness going on

Ok. I'm real dumb. I forgot I had a 94 STI with the original red stitched shift knob :confused:

Nice with some actual weights. Recall @53R speaking of this difference, probably in his thread on optional parts.

So my shift knobs finally came back from a reupholster (Craft customs in Texas, USA). Don't mind the carpet dust

STS025500180 (New leather and stitching):

35022AC030 (Just stitching):

Overall the precision of the shift gear numbers on the 35022AC030 and its hefty weight would make me recommend people to get that over the original STS025500180.

Unless you are more OCD than I am, and need to get the original shift knob no matter what, this alternative knob that looks exactly the same and has a better feel is the way to go.

This is interesting, but if it had new leather how can you then claim it has more precision to the numbers?

Edit: Realized you had pictures in a previous post. Seems like exact shape of knob and the positioning of the stamped gear layout is slightly different.

Ooops sorry.

I meant that replacing the leather on a old knob could lead to more "rough" looking shift numbers (since I assume its hard to stamp numbers on leather by hand) compared to the other new STS025500180 posted on this thread.

I have a black leather/black stitching one from a EU Impreza Turbo.
Used but in good condition.
First response is first win.
No need to win money on this, do a reasonable deal please .
