Your gear shifts contribute significantly to your overall driving experience, so you can make your car more rewarding to drive by upgrading its shift knob.
Aftermarket shift knobs come in various shapes, colors, and orientations. We at CarMods Australia have a wide variety of them, all of them from industry-leading manufacturers. We pride ourselves on being a top-rated supplier of shift knobs Australia and many other OEM/aftermarket automotive products.
Yes, stock shift knobs get the job done, but that’s about it! Car manufacturers do not invest as much into their design as aftermarket shift knob manufacturers that cater to street, performance, or off-road-focused markets. Therefore, an aftermarket shift knob will make a world of difference to your driving experience. A well-weighted shift knob will make every shift smoother and more manageable. Smoother shifts translate to less engine and transmission strain, so your car’s powertrain will likely benefit from less wear and tear. There’s also the fact that smoother, more effortless shifts boost driver confidence and engagement with the car. That will pay dividends on the race track or in performance driving applications because it will facilitate quicker acceleration.
In addition, aftermarket shift knobs improve in-cabin aesthetics because they come in vibrant colors and a wide range of dynamic designs. They are also bound to last longer than stock shift knobs because many are made from high-grade materials like stainless steel, carbon fiber, aluminum alloy, or wood.

Are weighted shift knobs bad for my car’s transmission?
