    Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with the Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob for 2015 and up GT EcoBoost and V6 Mustangs. The shift knob can be a centerpiece of the interior, and it's an area where the driver can almost add some self-expression, if you will, but without totally changing the interior. The Modern Billet Retro Style Shift Knob has almost a nostalgic styling to it, so it would be a good option for drivers looking for that type of style, for the MT82-equipped S550s, but still have the factory shifter handle. It is a classic 8 ball round type of shift knob for those drivers that prefer this over other styles. And while it is a minor mod, the shift knob is one of the connecting pieces between the car and driver, so it needs to be comfortable. So this particular Modern Billet Shift Knob is white with a black, engraved, classic 6-speed shift pattern on top. This shift knob is going to be a little bit different than the other options that are out there, because while this is a pretty simple and classic design, there is a wide range of colors available. So you can either keep it classic style or take a classic style and make it your own. Along with this black on white option, you are also looking at colors like white on black, black on polished, and then you've got your wild colors with a white on red and blue. If you think a white shift knob is going to stand out, then you should check out the pictures of the red and blue shift knobs. But no matter which color you end up choosing, they're all going to have the 6-speed shift pattern, of course, and it's always going to be engraved. They're all styled with inlaid engravings, and the engravings are usually preferred over the other options, like a decal, because then you don't have to worry about fading after use with an engraving. There are a ton of different types of material to choose from when you're looking for a shift knob. The material and finish are definitely something to consider, because different types of material have a different type of feel, and you also have to consider how the material will react to temperature changes, like the heat of summertime or the cold of wintertime. The colored shift knob options are made from a resin compound for strength and durability, and they're not as sensitive to heat or cold as other materials are. The polished knob, on the other hand, is made from a solid billet aluminum. So if you really want that look, then just keep in mind that this material will feel different, have a different weight, and will react to temperature changes. The next thing that should be considered when shopping for a shift knob is size. Now, size is important, because it's going to affect how the shifter feels in your hand, and these particular shift knobs have a one to three-fourths diameter, which is going to be a little bit smaller than some of the other options that are out there and even a little bit smaller than the factory shift knob. So if you're looking for a larger shift knob, then this one may not be it. So these shift knobs are made for the S550s, so they're reverse lockout-compatible. They were specifically designed keeping in mind the pull-up style or reverse lockout mechanism, but they don't leave a large gap between the bottom of the knob and the top of the factory boot, either. As far as price, these shift knobs costs right around $50, and they're actually on the less expensive side when we compare them to the other options that are out there right now, but just by a small margin. There are some more expensive billet aluminum knobs that are available if you prefer the look and feel of those, as well as other options that are not the classic 8 ball style. So the install here is really pretty easy. The shift knob doesn't come with any Loctite, though, and you're probably going to want some, so I'd suggest just picking some up before the install. The shift knob is very easy to access, and you're going to want to start the install by putting the car in reverse first. This will help you get the height of the shift knob without any trouble. The factory shift knob just comes off easily by using the normal [inaudible 00:03:26] rule. And then it's just a matter of putting some Loctite on the threads of the shifter handle, so your new shift knob doesn't back out when you start grabbing gears. Then you take your new shift knob and thread it down into place until it gets tight, but then I'd do one rotation backwards to make sure you're giving enough room for the reverse lockout. You don't want to install the knob and then not be able to get the car in reverse. Just make sure the knob is straight, so it doesn't look goofy later on, and then let it sit so that the Loctite can set. It probably needs about an hour or two to be safe, or an afternoon if you really want to be safe. Overall, this is a one-wrench install on our scale here, and it should take just about five minutes to complete as long as we don't count the set time. Wrapping things up here, the Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob is a classic 8 ball style shift knob with a 6-speed shift pattern for the MT82-equipped S550 Mustang that still has the factory shifter handle. It's reverse lockout-compatible, and there are a handful of different color options. But the color version is being made from a resin compound, and the polished version being billet aluminum, and they're all very easy to install. You can check these out more online along with all of your other shift knob options, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    Nostalgic Styling. Add cool vintage styling from the 60's to your S550 Mustang with a classic ball style Modern Billet Polished Shift Knob. This billet aluminum polished shift knob features a black embossed 6-speed shift pattern and will look fantastic with any 2015-2018 color scheme.

    Reverse Lock-out Compatible. Specifically engineered to work with the S550 Mustang's pull-up style reverse lockout mechanism, this Modern Billet Shift Knob won't leave an ugly gap between the bottom of the knob and the top of the factory shift boot.

    High Quality Materials. This 1-3/4" retro inspired shift knob by Modern Billet is made from 100% solid billet aluminum and then completed with an embossed 6-speed shift pattern on top. There's no need to worry about paint flaking off in your hand or the shift pattern fading from daily use.

    Simple Installation. With its 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern, simply unscrew your old stock shift knob and screw on this new Modern Billet Knob in its place. Swapping out your shift knob couldn't be faster or easier, giving you a big change in only a few minutes.

    Application. This Modern Billet Polished 6-speed Shift Knob is specifically designed to fit all 2015-2018 Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 6-speed manual transmission and the stock shifter handle, including the V6, EcoBoost and GT models.

    Will this shifter "yellow" over time or will it remain white?

    • This Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob should not yellow over time, however, the shift knob can yellow when exposed to excess UV rays and hand lotions or creams.

      Review from Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob - White (15-18 GT, EcoBoost, V6)

      Nothing to it...

      I was amazed how many reviewers stated how cheap this item is and that they destroyed it by screwing it down until the shifter shaft cracked the top. The instructions DO say to first screw the locking nut all the way down but come on guys, have a little common sense. It's a quality item, just the right size and installation is 5 minutes. Hardest part is getting the stock shifter off. A little trial and error getting the shift pattern aligned correctly by varying the position of the locking nut and you're good to go. If you can't install this right, w/o breaking it, you don't need to be playing around with a Hot Rod.

      The shift ball is nice. I didn't read the size when I bought it. So I ended up purchasing the Hurst shift ball.... way bigger... other then that the other knob was very nice

      Do NOT buy

      Looks great! Ordered 1, tried to install, would not line up correctly following the instructions. Ordered a replacement, no help, first one installed at 10 o'clock, second one is upside down. Chat says to spend more money to keep the nut in place to align it correctly? Why not include it in the product is beyond me. Would NOT recommend.

      Looks good ,poor quality

      Looks great installed but during installation inside threads were not epoxied to the ball so shift ball would not stay attached . I re opoxied it and it worked great ,but I shouldn’t have had to do that in my opinion. Took 24 hours for epoxy to set

      Old school is the best

      I could never get use to the shift handle that came with the car. So when I saw this white round shift knob, it has that classic look to it. It also has the right feel in your hand. As for installing the knob had a bit of trouble getting the ford handle off. I didn't want to put a wrench on it, so I had one of those jar opening rubber gripper and that's all I needed to get it off, my grip is just not what it use to be. As for the new one just a little lock tight spun it down and let it set over night. Perfect fit
