Jesus. And I thought the kids putting $10,000 worth of upgrades in a $3,000 civic were nuts.

But a Damn $150,000 shift knob in a $170,000 car????

I think the second commenter on the Autoblog post had the right idea: "A rock and some bolt cutters; I'll be in and out in 15 seconds!"

...Come to think about it: Doesn't Paris Hilton drive a Bentley? Guess we know what her next purchase will be, don't we?

That page took longer to load than my ruger old army, and less satisfying :-)

Wonder if they make one for my bitchin' Elantra?!

this isn't an upgrade, it's "bling". I don;t know about Hondas but I could easily dump ten grand in my Cutlass, especially if I was lazy and bought a crate engine. After ten grand in engine and suspension I'd have a car that'd be quick enough to stay with most cars the friendly side of $40,000.

"Now, do pay close attention, 007. Flip back the top of the jewel-encrusted shift leever, press the button, and the passenger seat is ejected through the roof."

"You're joking."

"I never joke about my jewel-encrusted work, 007."

Of course we all know the real James Bond did not drive a BMW, or an Aston-Martin. He drove a Bentley. Felix Leiter? Studillac.
