    Hmm. I always thought people bought them for function rather than looks. Even gayer than I thought, then.

    I have a homemade nylon bar on mine, its longer and fatter than standard and I find its better for drifting with. But its not half as long as some of these dildo knobs!

    I had one albeit not massive but because I used to like resting my arm on arm rest and be able to change gear without Having to extend my arm too much

    And for looks :p

    A dildo gear knob should only be found in a hot dirty chicks car. If your a guy with one you like to hold cock.

    Like seriously if someone who had no idea asked... "What the hell is that?" and you turned around and said it's a dildo gear knob what do you think they would be sitting there thinking? :nod:

    tbh i prefer my dildo gear knob to my normal one in my rx it just feels better and is closer to the steering wheel rather that have the shit ones and standard

    although mine is kinda normal sized id say 6 inch big (plus girls like it haha)

    I had one in the mx5 because the standard one is a tiny little thing. I found something bigger was a bit easier to find whilst flapping about. But it was by no means necessary, nor did it improve my skillz yo.

    When at DWYB going for 3rd i'd miss a lot of the time, with a 15cm stick i find it hard to miss.

    Have a small one in mine just a cheeky 8 incher , kept crunching 3rd with the small knob it had on before but with the extra leverage of the Dildo it seems to slot in much easier and much nicer. Horses for courses some like them some don't.

    pretty much this, and its easier to change the radio with your arm resting on it
