My knob lights up!

I turned my lights on or the first time this morning when heading out to work. And lo, I discovered that I have an illuminated gear stick!

Sorry about the silly post. Sometimes I can't believe I'm over 50, especially when I get excited over stupid things like this. :oops:

Don't worry about getting carried away!

If you are really lucky you will get away without starting another shiny knob thread... :D :D

Mine is more of a glowing knob than a shiny knob

My knob is a bit loose, I'm scared that if I jiggle it about too much it might come off. :shake:
