Jer is aware of this and is looking into offering a silver with blue stripe version. I believe you can find info about it in the Performance Parts section.

Very interesting... I think they need a better shot of that black knob, though. Hard to see anything on it but reflection from their lighting. :)

Once again on the fence with this item too on whether to go safe and get a black shifter ball for a black KR, or go red. The only red on the interior of the black KR is the steering wheel stitching. I am always drawn to black/red combos. My old high school was black and red too! So maybe that's the draw

I suggest you ask Jer the same question on the Performance Parts forum. He seems to monitor that forum regularly. GL

There are so many requests for custom shifter balls, we decided to start engineering a new program... pick your shift pattern, color, logo, shifter pattern, stripe type and color, threading, etc... and get it made custom!
Not an overnight process, but I really want you all to be able to get what you want.
