I had a look at Porsche 917 style knobs, and decided that I'd want this for my MINI. Did some research and took some measurements, and it turns out that the shaft diameter on old Porsches is almost exactly the same as that on the CoolerWorx! So I sourced this knob and a genuine Porsche crush washer, added a spacer to the inside of the knob (so I could still pull up the reverse lock out far enough) and sure enough, it fit like a glove!

Had to source facelift gear cables for my car, so got a set of used ones, but the shifting felt to stiff afterwards. Installed some brand new cables, and it feels just perfect now!
