FYI Subarus use the same thread pitch.

Look at Kartboy, WC Latheworks, and 9K Racing for WRX shift knobs. Lots of good options out there. I prefer delrin material as it doesn't get as hot as metal knobs in the Summer.

Thanks so much for this guide and the idea to use the drill bit stop helped a lot as well!

I did this about a month ago and just posting a picture now :)

Note that because the knob is 12x1.25, SVTF knobs (and any knobs which work for the SVTF) will also work with the MK3.

I put my delrin Kartboy WRX shift knob which I had used in my 02 SVTF into my 2012 Focus this morning. Fits perfect and feels great :) Here's the product link: http://www.fastwrx.com/kadeshkn.html

I've been in contact with Chris from latheworks a couple of days ago, he's making a titanium knob for me and my ST. Neat that he updated the site after I was in contact with him.

I'm pretty obsessed with titanium but isnt half the point to new knob increased mass to make shifting easier

New knob is 315g, pretty sure that's at least double the weight of the stock one
