The gearknob that I received did not match the 'painted metal' description give by Kevin, mine was of a lightweight resin construction including the thread - perhaps the specification has changed.
The weight is at best only half of that of the original Mazda part and feels quite cheap and not up to the same quality. I found it to be a very tight fit, so much so that I think the thread was incorrect as it felt that I was cutting a new one. I will be returning this part for a refund.
I received excellent service from John Barrett of MX5parts, this is only one of several parts ordered from this site that I have not been disappointed with, I will not hesitate to use them again.
Editors Note: This is a Genuine Mazda part, the thread is spot on. It is always worth inspecting/cleaning up the thread on the actual lever as it is amazing how often this has got damaged.
