Factory Hurst and aftermarket Hurst are different shifters. The aftermarket billet shaft will not bolt up to the factory Hurst shifter. It might be easier/cheaper to get threads cut into the factory Hurst shifter shaft and add a white knob to it.

Factory is different, far inferior to the aftermarket. I drove the factory and was very disappointed.

The only problem with the after market is it's a little noiser than the factory. But if you can deal with that, it's all good!

I have the factory shifter in my SS. and I have to say I like it.. but then again I have not driven one with an after market shifter. the factory comes with the leather knob that matches the interior of the car but does have the Hurst emblem on the side..

I would not go as far as to say "inferior"... I would say it's more personal preference than anything.

Is it me, or is does that 'leather' not feel like leather?

I feel that a lot of the leather pieces in this car are not leather but vinyl or some mock leather material.

I like the factory hurst...the longer throw would be less comfortable I believe.

I concur. The OEM Hurst is 22% reduction. Aftermarket Hurst is 44%.

The only real leather is the seat inserts in the 2LT and 2SS. Everything else is pleather vinyl.

I do not agree with that sentiment at all, but it's a subjective point of view. The Hurst in my 2012 feels pleasing to the hand.

All I was asking is what type of material it feels like?

According the stieger it isn't real leather, and that is something that some of us can tell the difference of.

Personally I am fine with the height and design of the shifter, I only wish they used real quality materials instead of a faux leather.

Sorry for going off topic.

In reference to the height/design of the shifter. Hurst sells an adapter that lets you use the OEM knob with their aftermarket shifter.
