Anyone looking for a Shift Knob?

Came across a really nice shift knob on Ebay for a nice price.

Black Wood/Chrome.

Seller is 1petrino1

I had been looking all over for one to replace the OEM in my R170. Wasn't sure if this would fit, but emailed him and he confirmed it would. Got it and it looks great and fits very nicely.

He has it listed at $69.99, but automatically accepted my best offer price of $55.

Manufacturer is Schatz.

Yeah, I thought about the cold weather. Fortunately it doesn't get extremely cold where I'm at or I would have had to go leather.

Here is a picture of it installed in my car:
