The Miata knob is fantastic. It "feels" heavier, but it is smaller than the what came with the car. I have small hands so I really like it. Just stop in at you local hardware store and by a nylon spacer to take up the gap. Pop the trim and slide the spacer on. No big deal.

I ordered from Amayama Trading Co. If you don't mind waiting it will save you $50.

Just checked their site $81 & $13 plus $17 shipping. Where did you get those prices?

Yes. It far exceeds the lifeless OEM rubber knob that comes with the car. It is MUCH heavier than the OEM one (I have both in hand).

The MX-5 shift knob is just slightly lighter than the JBR Hybrid Cylindrical heavy shift knob that I just installed. The JBR knob is 445 grams to give you an idea of the MX-5 knob weight. The leather has a real nice feel to it too.

I may go back to it someday or use it on a Miata I plan to get for my daughter.
