Default Will the OEM Ti Knob get ridicilous hot during summer?

Hello everyone, I currently have the OEM aluminium/leather knob and would like to switch to the OEM Titanium knob.

My only concern is that the Ti knob would get quite hot during summer days?

My aluminium/leather knob is always comfortable to touch, even when the sun is burning on the car with opened roof for hours.

Thanks!

Any bare metal knob will get hot in direct sun.

I wear a hat when driving, to block sun in eyes/face. When I park, I just place hat over shifter...

Uh that is actually really smart :P

I have to say that I usually close my top when parking anyway. So it might not be that much of a problem for me.

Sunlight through the Windows it can still get too hot to touch at times. When its that hot out, use the hat trick.

Here in Richmond along about May the jockeying for shaded parking resembles an Olympic sport.

Parked with the roof down in the summer turns my seats (and shift knob) into waffle irons. Interior is black but the "CR" shift knob is shiny metal. Since our cars really can't be effectively locked I'll frequently put the roof up and leave the windows down. At certain temperatures like the 90° days predicted this week the roof stays up and the AC runs. Or the S2000 stays tucked in the garage waiting for more temperate temperatures.

A Crown Royal baggie is a popular way to cover up the shifter on hot days, if you have one laying around.

If the top is left down in the sun, then you will be too distracted by the skin peeling off the back of your thighs onto the hot seats to notice the imprint the shifter is leaving in your hand...


Its not THAT bad, but yes, it will get hot. I have used a hat before as some mentioned. Other times I have shifted by grabbing the leather boot below the knob until the knob cools.

I think what's worse is how cold it would get over the winter. I used to wear gloves in the winter just because of my shift knob.
