Terminate the competition

Pretend your car is one of the Terminator robots with this universal-fit chrome shifter knob with enamel red eyes. With this one add-on you can combine old-school hot rodding with futuristic cyborg technologies. www.thehotrodgirl.com; about Dh130.


Light at the end of the gear stick

All you gizmo fiends out there - this one is for you. The Gaslock universal LCD gear display knob does exactly what you'd expect - displays what gear you are in. The maker claims it helps reduce fuel consumption and increase drive safety, but whatever - it just looks cool. www.indy-cator.de, Dh800


A sporty shifter

It wouldn't be right to not include a good, properly sporty looking gear knob here, so we've opted for this slick, blue leather Litium SV shifter from US company Sparco. It ticks all the boxes in terms of sporty looks and comfort and is available in a range of colours. www.vividracing.com, about Dh400.
