XV Crosstrek Shift Knob Removal and Upgrade (manual transmission)
The stock Subaru 5-speed shift knob is rubbery and terrible. I decided to drop $40 on eBay for an OEM weighted leather knob. Surprisingly, the rubber OEM shift knob and upgraded leather shift knob were the same weight. Changing out the shift knob takes only a few minutes and resulted in a considerably more pleasant, controlled driving experience.
