thread dimensions for shift knob

Once upon a time, I planned to turn a new wooden gearshift knob for my Audi
('91 200q). However, the Audi gods intervened before I could even get
around to  looking at the thread dimension needed.

Unfortunately, my _next_ quattro is being very elusive, and it appears I
might have time for a custom-made shift knob to be at the ready.(**) This
is a very simple task, but requires a suitable bolt to use as a lathe
mandrel. The thread information probably lurks in my Bentley manuals, but
if anyone _happens_ to know the dimensions of the gearshift lever thread
(is it the same for all Audi models?), please let me know. I suppose I
_could_ assume that the thread on my '89 100 slushbox lever would be the
same as for 5 spd, but then...?

(**)Specifications for my virtual Audi:
"Audi '91 200q, green/tan leather, sport seats, 50 kmiles, spotless, new
timing belt, extra set BBS wheels w/Hakka1 snow tires, factory phone, 30
disc CD changer w $30,000 worth of Nakamichi stereo equipment, ECU chip,
front brake conversion and new struts just installed. Needs new gearshift
knob. $10.5K obo."
