I will start by saying that I do not have a CTS-V and car lingo and I do not work well together, so I apologize ahead of time. My boyfriend has a 2005 CTS-V. He has seen the new 2009 and higher CTS-V manual standard shifter knobs that have the V on it. I was wanting to surprise him for his birthday, but am paranoid if it will fit the 2005 V or not? If anyone has put the new one on or has at least knows it will fit could you please reply and let me know. I appreciate it very much!
