    Question Gear Knobs

    Hey guys, ok so I was taking a look at my friend's S3 and he's got a different shifter to mine (the knob that is), it looks like this:


    Mine looks like this


    Now I wanted to ask where I can get the standard S3 one from? and would the TT shifts from VAG parts fit? (as pictured below?)




    cheers, for any help.

    P.S. Since I'm asking about shifters, do any of you know where I can get the standard S3 steering wheel from? and get the airbag to work? This multi-function crap sucks

    I've got an Audi all metal shifter for my S3 that I got through VAG Parts however it came with the surround and leather gaitor for the facelift so I had to swap over just the knob bit. They stopped listing it not long after I got mine (which took an age to arrive 6wks +).

    Yes, but they get their parts direct from Germany. There's a few things that are RHD specific that they can't get (floormats).

    How come mine isn't a facelift dash? Everything else is (i.e. Lights) I thought maybe the previous owner got it with the multi-function steering wheel.

    Was this the original S3 one? or an aftermarket all metal one?

    I'll see if I've got a pic when I get home - it's not quite the same as the TT one you've got a pic of and I've got a friend with an S3 that's got the same one in his facelift S3 (or the previous owner did the same as me) so I think it must have been an official factory option or accessory on the later cars.

    PS... your's is a facelift car, don't worry I think they must have changed the design of the gear knob a few times.

    There was an all metal one in the gmbh exclusive range which was a supplement to the brochure from 2002 onwards. It was so annoying as most dealers didn't know it existed so not many people benefited from specing their parts.

    It also had carbon insert options and the factory lowered suspentsion available seperately for avus wheeled cars (was standard with the 18"RSTT's - thats why they were an £2500 option) etc etc.
