I'll put this thread under performance mod since it does help improve my shifting since this knob won't be loosening on a quick shift like the factory one is doing with its plastic threads.

I ordered it from here: ::SFR:: Seoulfulracing Online Store/Community

It is compatible with the reverse locking tab we have on the manual transmissions and it has metal threads to ensure a nice tight fit on the stick shift.

Note: The rubber rings are medium red color not the orange look that the iPhone is capturing.

I had requested Seoulfulracing to include just the System Racing lettering badge but they sent me the 5 speed badge which the reverse doesn't match the pattern. Not that I look at the pattern anymore but would have been nicer with just the lettering. At least now I can laugh at whomever goes to borrow my car and can't get it in reverse... :) (I'm not evil, honest...)

Give it a year, there will be so many aftermarket parts for your car it will be crazy.
200 bucks is not all that bad for a dealer item. But i would sink 200$ elsewhere.
My buddy works @ a dealership and he scratched a viper gas cap. Set them back 700$ dealer cost. lol

I haven't looked into the auto shifters to see if any difference in thread design. You should be able to locate a couple of shops that sell and list the 2010 forte as compatible to see what thread size you need and if any special feature required to shift. The manual needed the reverse lock feature to work with our cars.
