Expecting a little moreGot the full shifter package w/knob. Love the shifter knob. I picked up the white with red COBB band. Really matches the interior well.
Install went well with the short throw shifter and front bushing. Enter rear bushing. What a nightmare to try and get in, even with removing the linkage! The instructions are from like 2005 or something. They really need an update and there’s not a solid you tube video out there, either. You might want to have the rear bushing professionally installed to save you a lot of time and frustration.
Over all feel of the new package fell a little short of my expectations. I was expecting a tighter feel from stock.

Eric Custodio from
Cobb Shifter bushingsI recently installed these bushing on my 2011 STi. I think the car should have came with these from the factory because it shifts like it should. Shifting is more crisp and you can feel each and every gear and you shift, no slop left in the shifter.
Install was ok, i removed the heat shield, and the tranny crossmember and gained access to the bushings, the replacement took me a total of 1.5hrs on the floor in my garage, with a lift and air tools this job should take no more then 45 mins.
The Bushings are a little pricey considering they are three pieces of poly, but id say it was worth it.

This shift knob makes a differenceI bought this a few weeks ago and I'm very impressed with the quality and feel of this shift knob. It also helped me improve shifting gears.
As others mentioned, in the heat the bottom portion of the knob gets really hot but as others suggested I cover it with the Crown R. cloth bag and it keeps the temp down.
Also at first I was having trouble getting into reverse when the knob is tighten all the way, I had to use both hands to not slam it into reverse for the first week or so now it seems to be getting better with time, just hope that it's not because I'm doing damage to the shift mechanism

great once installedI gave this a 1-star rating for the incorrect design for my car. Nonetheless, taken together with the front shifter bushing, this is a great product, but the installation will make you cry.
I am not alone in experiencing the problems that I encountered (google it). The two holes that the bolts go through are parallel in the bushing design, however, on the stock bushing and on the car, the holes to screw into are NOT parallel, but inward facing. There is no bending the bushing to comply (which speaks to the quality of the bushing). I was really frustrated at how difficult this seemingly simple install should have been and confused as to how little attention to this major detail was overlooked.
there are different methods, but here is mine:
-Remove one of the metal barrels to give more lateral play so bolt goes in at an angle.
-Install bushing and drive for ~250 miles.
-Bolt hole now has more play. Reinstall metal barrel and bushing and bring install to completion!

MehJust finished installing. Gotta say the quality is great, the fitment is terrible. Like the other reviewers stated, the bolt holes in the bushing should be angled instead of straight through. I ended up using die grinder to slightly angle the bushing holes were the sleeves go through, also had to grind 1/8" off the top due to pinch weld interference. Not sure if I would purchase again.

Doesn't get any better.The WRX should come from the factory with this knob. I have the short throw shifter but something didn't feel quite right until I put this knob on. Know shifts feel great and it looks right at home in the interior.

COBB Knob FTW!I purchased this knob along with my front license plate delete and it is a master piece. It is super light weight and has a great look and smooth feel. I could not be happier... well, I could but I will have to wait until I can afford a stage 1 tune for the WRX... :)

Awesome. STI owns the competitionI installed this with the short throw shifter and a borla exhaust on my new 2019 STI limited. I was going between the new Honda Civic Type R and the 2019 STI Limited. Honestly what got me was AWD and Sunroof and with this simple mod the Shifter is much better than the civic type R and the STI exhaust note is incredible. I am so sick of all the hype of the new civic type R when 1000 bucks of simple aftermarket upgrades makes the STI smoke pretty much anything on the Road. Way to go Cobb, you guys rock. These bushings are awesome. I had my dealer install them because they have the right tools.
