Looking for opinions and thoughts.

So the Abarth I have on order is silver with Recaro seats. I will be doing the heritage wrap in vinyl (satin black) and the red mirrors and lip (on order).

I really like the design and ergonomics of the Raceseng Sphereology knob. The color choices are killing me!

1. Classic black with machined center. Matches interior, tech looking, etc
2. Red with machined center. Matches the "red" theme on the Abarth but maybe to much? Toy like? Or, racy and cool?
3. Then there are endless options if you go custom and paint the stainless in any of their great colors. Like a black knob with a red center, etc.

Here are some pics to get you thinking.

If you must change the factory knob, which personally I'd leave as I think it's a stylish piece of work, go for anything but that red knob. Looks tacky.

Personally, I like the black with the red center. Red details with your red mirrors and lips are appropriate.
I'm also envious at those who can order Abarths. My dealers say they cannot order any Abarths. They must wait for the next model year. They say.

Well I was super lucky. They had the exact color and options I wanted on order already. I just put a deposit on it. Still 4 months away.

I ran the black Sphereology on a previous car. Great shift knob. Red personally was a little too bright for me, but it's your car :). The good thing is you can buy different colors fairly cheap so you can always swap to the other color if you don't like it. The cover (the colored part) threads onto the stainless steel core. It's a nifty design.

Has anyone installed one of these shift knobs on a 124 yet? I'm going to get the translucent Rondure or Ashiko knob and am curious as to if I need the retainer for the shift boot.

Black with the red center... for sure. I have seen Raceseng products before and have always adored from afar.. never really got the opportunity to order anything from them though but I heard they're products are top notch.

Man that looks good, thanks for the heads up! I'll be sure pick up the retainer when I make up my mind between the Rondure/Ashiko.
