Andreas, I am happy to report that just today I received my new shift knob and pedals from Paul Hill Engineering. For anyone interested, I got the stainless polished knob with unpainted engraved numbering. I got the slightly larger one, and it is beautiful. It has a little heft to it that the original 328 plastic knob didn't, which feels very nice in your hand. It's an awesome piece, and I would recommend it and them highly.
