Default Custom zhp knob

So my car came with a zhp knob. The leather was worn out and shiny.
As my ocd sways from one part of the car to the other i became fixated on the shift knob. I couldnt stop looking at it and how it looked with everything else around it. It seemed bulbous. Just a little too big and bulky not by much but enough to erk me. I kept looking trying to accept it or find another not so bulbous alternative. I found nothing. So im here. It may seem dumb or stupid whatever i dont care.

I know not all examples arenít zhp but its for show. These look like a good size from the top but they donít follow through the whole knob. They look small and good in these pictures.



I stripped the leather off. Seems to be a hard plastic of sorts. Going to see if i can shave it down to a proportion i like better and will get it re wrapped. Will post updates here

Why fix it? Unless you wanna learn how to wrap leather I don't see any reason why you don't just replace it.

Honestly, there are plenty (like, hundreds) different knobs available for these cars. Just go to ECS and type shift knob, you'll get 15 pages to choose from. I would definitely go that way first.
