Check out This Handy Dandy Shift Knob




Those looking to turn their car into an updated version of K.I.T.T. may want to give Indy-Cator's latest creation some consideration, which manages to spice up an otherwise ordinary shift knob by outfitting it with a built-in LCD. In addition to adding that touch of excess, the knob supposedly "increases driving safety" and even "helps reduce fuel consumption by up to 15 percent," () apparently by helping to adapt your driving style. If that sounds like the shift knob you've been waiting for, you can get one of these now in your choice of red or blue for $169.





We've always been of the opinion that if it doesn't make you go faster, stick better or be safer, it's generally a waste of money. There have been exceptions, but this has to be one of the coolest.

The idea is pretty self-explanatory: on top of the shift knob is an LCD that after telling it the number of gears and, we're assuming, the movement of the stalk, displays what cog your transmission is residing.

Unfortunately, our German is a bit rusty, so when we downloaded the Indy-Cator's directions, we weren't able to decipher how it's programmed. If you've got the means, we'd ask you to check out the company's website and let us know exactly how this little piece of automotive geeketry works.

According to TMTuning, installation is straightforward, the LCD has an auto-dimming feature and it can be yours in blue or red for $169.00. Worthwhile? That's in the hand of the beholder.

Re: Check out This Handy Dandy Shift Knob

wtf how does a led that knows what gear you are in give you an increase in driving safety, a increase in mileage and how does it have anything to do with driving style?

i think its cool, not 170$ cool though. dont need a number on the shifter to tell me what gear im in.
