SS shift knob on a OG9-3??

This picture has many things I would like... but the easiest thing that caught my eye was the SS knob.

Are these a direct fit?



That looks so much better IMHO.

wow, this picture is amazing, never seen that steering wheel, the nav looks stock (is it?) and great mounting on the boost gauge. Who owns this car?

It's my winter beater... I wish.

Hit properties, and then look at the rest of the pics.

Some dude overseas.

The nav is OEM from an SS.

Never seen the boost guage though, but it's the best place for it.

The steering wheel is a Hirsch product. I believe the brushed aluminum dash is to. The nav system is a stock but rare Saab factory option.

I have never seen that boost gauge before... Looks custom. Topher has done stuff like that.

How difficult would it be to put the nav in? That would be a nice upgrade. What about interface with the steering controls? Any ideas?

Love that interior. You could try a 9-5 shift konb instead, that is a direct swap:

This one came from an aero, the boot did too.
I don't know about the SS option but I thought I might offer additional options.

Thanks for staying on topic, and talking about shift knobs.

There is another thread about the nav system.

Anyone know if the SS knob would fit??

I like the aluminum top, and that it's an OEM piece.

It should fit, just be careful with them, they like to break alot. We replace them all the time at work.

Yeah, they are uber-flimsy. And they cost a small fortune (usually).

How do they break? Does the top fall off?

Yes, the top breaks off sometimes, we've had some come in where the entire shifter has come apart with no explanation. It's a poorly designed shifter that is used across the board by GM. I've seen it in a few Saturns, some Chevy Cobalts etc. only without reverse lock.

According to that guy's garaget site, he has done a 6 speed tranny conversion as well...so i'm sure that plays huge role in the fitment as well.

I think I'll try this pretty soon, so I'll be watching for news on this.

The door mount is a good idea but I dont see how a boost guage will work unless its electronic given the silicone line must pass through the door jamb.

I thought of this too... I wonder if you could pass it through the accordian boot in the hinge??
