you mean something like this


Then all you need to do is go to your chevy dealer and get the manual shifter boot.

I want to do this too. I'm thinking about ordering this one and playing around with it to see if I can get it to work.

I don't think those will work, but then I could be wrong.

If I started this thread I'd be crucified.

After you find your boot you should look in to the button shifter.

I would get that button paddle shifter knob but i never use manual mode. S mode combined with competetive mode stabil/tc is plenty fine for me, my car shifts real hard and right on the money in S mode, perfect for me. I like the idea of making it look like a manual shifter with the ball and the boot but I dunno if it can be done.

I never used it either. Till I got the shifter.

Now I rarely drive without it. And it will serve me well on the autoX.

Yeah come to think of it, my hand is always down there because I'm so programmed to driving sticks over the years, and because I do like to shift into N at lights to ease the push and let everyone hear the lope. I bet if I had that shifter I'd use it too. But I do really like the idea of the boot and ball manual look.

You don't press a button, you pull back on the shifter and it rocks back and is spring loaded.

Most solid shifter I've seen yet. And I've had a few different shifters.

Jump to 0:30 seconds to see.
