    I went with the suede. It really fits the theme of the interior like the seats.

    From pictures it doesn't seem to be any different shape - is it? What about weight - is it any heavier by any chance? If its just an aesthetic mod, I'll knock it down on my list a bit for now. Also looking at Lloyd "V" mats (gonna go with black mats on my grey carpet), clear fogs (group buy going on!), and a 2nd ECM to send away for some programming/tuning. Oh, and saving up for an LS7 clutch swap sometime (if I could just stop nickel 'n' dime-ing myself to death!). Spring must be in the air, eh!!

    Aesthetic only. Same body from V1 to V2. The V2 has that different shift pattern cap on top and is available in suede. That's it. They snap on the same, they feel the same...

    SAME!

    It snaps/pops right on there. No screwing or bolts or anything like that.

    Much better look than stock. I went with the non-suede V2 knob and love it (actually my wife bought it for me for Christmas).

    So what you're trying to say is that they're pretty similar... Like almost the same... Got it. lol

    It bolts right up...they are identical. I have the leather version of the V2 knob.



    V2 Knob on Left, V1 Knob on right.

    Now that I've done some research, I don't know if I can justify $110+ on basically just replacing that top cap with a V emblem rather than what's there now. For the extra $, I think I'm leaning towards a TWM Desert Eagle in satin. I think the 1.2 pound weight will improve shifts a bit [especially since I had Brian (PISNUOFF) shorten the height of my shifter, thus reducing leverage a bit).
    I'll admit that it doesn't look quite as "in place" as the V1/V2 knobs, but the functionality helps me justify the cost.
