Hi All,

Some of you may have heard of the ultra rare Team Orange / Syms Shift Knob, which was released in a limited edition of only 100 worldwide.

This is it ...

You can also see it in this photo ...

These shift knobs are almost impossible to get hold of, but we have tracked down the last 6 left on the planet of the 100 that were made.

We have not advertised these elsewhere, as they are the kind of product that should only go to true JDM enthusiasts, so the JDMST forum is the only place we have advertised them.

If you want one, please see this page on our website to order one - but if you want one, be ultra fast - these things will not last ! ...

We don't have weight data on them. I'm not sure what the thread pattern is on your EK.


Is it only in m12 x p1.25mm?

I want M10 x1.25mm

The info we have from Japan (computer translated) reads ...

"5MT 6MT common use.
M12×1.25 (SUBARU NISSAN and the like)"

So as far as I know they are only available in M12×1.25.

A photo of the Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel, Works Bell Team Orange Rapfix II and Team Orange Syms Limited Edition Shift Knob in an STi :)

For some reason the quick release looks redder in that photo than it actually is. It's actually this colour ...

Hi All,

As many will remember, we bought the last 6 of these limited edition shift knobs from Syms back in 2009, and they sold out very quickly. Syms only made 100 of them worldwide.

We were doing an office cleanup here last week and we found a box with one of the limited edition Team Orange Shift Knobs in it. It is brand new in the original box and has never been fitted.

Of the last 6, 4 were sold to customers, I bought one myself and this one we were going to keep, but since it was just sitting on a shelf and as no doubt someone on JDMST would appreciate it, we've put the one we were going to keep up on eBay tonight. We'll ship it worldwide.

This shift knob is only available in M121.25 thread pattern.

A machine translation of the information from Syms Japan about these shift knobs reads ...

----------------
"As the collaboration model of TEAM ORANGE and SYMS Racing Team, the shift knob was sold with limited 100 ...

5MT 6MT common use. M121.25 (SUBARU NISSAN and the like) ..."
----------------

ARC advises the following info on their website about cars that use M12x1.25 thread pattern however this info refers to ARC brand shift knobs, so you need to check with a qualified automotive engineer to check compatibility for your vehicle ...

----------------
"M121.25 - NT45004B - BNR34, JZA80(6F) etc…
M121.25 depressed - NT45005B - MR-2. MARKII, IMPREZA, LEGACY, S15(6F) etc…"
