Default Shift knob replacement from China?

My leather shift knob is disintegrating. Rather than paying $100 for a replacement OEM one, I found a potential option on ebay, an 'Unbranded' leather knob.

Anyone tried these?

Any other options that don't cost an arm and a leg? I like the stock look, but I'll look at other options if affordable. The delrin knob from genuinesaab looks nice, but even that's $60 after shipping.

Any ideas in the $20-40 range (or less)? I just want something that's not falling apart. Maybe replace the leather?

Yeah, I've been tempted to get that one. But $60 to buy is and have it shipped to me is a bit much. At least, it seems like a lot for what is essentially a plastic ball. Glad to hear you like it, that might push me a little more that way.

Well, screw it. A part ordering error from another company got me $40 back. So I'm just ordering the smooth delrin knob from genuinesaab.
