How To Install CorkSport Leather Shift Knob
It will take you an easy 5 minutes to install your new shift knob.
So first I'd like to say this is the third product I have purchased from Cork Sport and each of them have come fast and are high quality. I didn't think that swapping out my shifter knob would make a big difference, but it made a huge difference. Feels great in my hand and shifts are a lot smoother.
The customer service is awesome too, I received a handwritten card thanking me for my purchase and a necklace for St Patrick's day. I know that's a little cheesy but that speaks volumes for there customer service

One of the first accessories I bought, mainly because of cost, this shift knob was a harbinger of the awesome quality that was to mark every CS mod I purchased. I was surprised at the weight of the unit, but it was a snap to install and has become part of the interior of my Speed! Great accessory!

I got myself one of these knobs as well as a set of shifter bushings for my '12 Speed3 and what a night and day difference it makes! The shifter bushings made my shifts feel more direct and sharp, combine them with this knob and it's now my perfect shifter. The knob itself is very nicely weighted, it makes my shifts feel balanced and smooth. Great for daily driving and brillant when your going for it. Quality is excellent for a hand stitched piece and the CS logo embroidery looks sharp, I also appreciate the colour matching to give it a clean look that matches the Speed's interior design. Since upgrading my RMM, bushings and shifer knob on my Speed3 to Corksport parts my car has a night and day shifter feel. It's the perfect feel for my taste!

I was a little concerned when making this purchase because the ND MX5 comes stock with a 300 gram shift knob. I received the package quickly. Easy instructions and a small CorkSport sticker was included. Installation was a breeze and the red stitching matches the stock shift boot. Quality of the shift knob is excellent. Feel of this shifter in my hand is excellent and is much better than the stock "ball" shaped shifter. Because of the weight of the shift knob the feel of my shifting is not changed and in fact it feels better due to the better shape. I am extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend this shift knob to anyone who asks me.

Nice product, feels very smooth. I was planning to buy the oem for my 2003 Protege5, but CS's works great! Thx CS!

Love the shift knob, the leather is beautifully stitched. And the red stiching was a great touch to help it match the interior, it's heavier than oem but not as heavy as my old 420 gram blox shift knob which is perfect. Shifting it smoother and the grip is really nice. And best part is in FL heat it doesn't get as hot as metal shift knobs. Thank you corksport

Awsome shift knob, very good quality. Together with CS shifter bushings and short shift plate, it takes shifting feel to completely another level!
Adam Mendelewski02/24/2016, 05:38 PM
Installation takes less than 5 minutes, and that is with a smoke and beer break. Knob is heavier and beefier than stock. It is not a dramatic difference, but shifting is smoother.

I've had this shift knob installed for about a week now. I love it! It's just a bit heavier than stock so my shifts aren't any slower but at the same time doesn't require as much effort as the stock knob. The form is exactly what I wanted as well. The only downside is it doesn't quite reach the shift boot. It still turns but it's really tight so I'm not sure if it's just stripping the threads or if there is still room for it to go down further. Either way it's a very small gap that you can't see as much as you can feel.

Nice shift knob but no silver stitching option. If it did it would be 5 stars.
Frank05/31/2015, 08:39 PM
Awesome, no nonsense shift knob. Weight is perfect, texture to the leather is smooth and supple while providing grip when you need it, no stitch bite. Natural feel when shifting from either the top or side.
By far the best knob I've tried for my 3 and it's ended the search.
Evan Worley04/16/2015, 11:14 AM
Feels great with your palm resting on top or pistol gripping it. Weight is perfect, the look it matches the interior perfectly. Everyone that drives my car wants one.
The only thing that could make it better is showing the gear pattern.

It has been a while seen I was looking for a shit knob that would satisfy my taste but nothing convinced me until this new corksport product came out. I bought it for my mazdaspeed 3 and it feels and looks awesome! The red stitching makes it look very sporty! great match with my red and black interiors.
Shifting feels more pleasant!
For those who are questioning about the quality of the leather and it's stitching, the quality is outstanding. One thing is looking at it in the picture, another is having the feel of it during shifting. Like always Spencer and the guys at corksport are always willing to clarify any questions and help you with any product. So if you are looking for a great shift knob for your mazda don't look at universal shift knobs or other brands, this is the product for you, trust me! cs specially made it to be able to thread into the oem shifter which is great because the majority of the shift knobs on the market are with plastic caps and allen screws which increases the chance of damaging the oem thread(it happened to me with a sparco shift knob)
Once again thanks corksport guys for thinking about our mazda platform and putting dedication into such excellent products. Thumbs up!

I bought this for my 2008 mazda3 to replace a very worn shift knob. Huge improvement. And I love the clásico look.
Robbie02/26/2015, 02:25 PM
I bought this for my speed 6 over the other shift knob keeps it looking clean and shifting between gears is much smoother!
You should definitely make this in blue. Your aluminum shift knob comes in blue, right? Do you sell a lot of those? The Skyactiv guys would love it in blue also. To match the gauges and the blue LED backlighting on the dash screens.
