    TT Gear-knob...

    Just wondered if any of you knew off the top of your head if this gear knob would fit my Prefaclift A3?

    http://www.forgemotorsport.co.uk/con...product=FMTTGK

    The standard one is made from rubber i think its all worn now so want a replacement.. will be looking for a short shift kit too soon...!

    Does the gear-knob just pull off?

    Thanks!

    i don't know if there is a way around it, but the gearknob on my a3 sport is attached to the gaiter, so you may need a new one of those too..


    I like "Posh Fiats"

    They do it in 5 speed too...

    I noticed that too Sam-K hmm i was thinking this was going to be simple?

    Do you have to cut it off and put a custom gaiter on there or something?

    when i had my a3 it already had an aftermarket gearknob on, a fakey cardon look one and my gear gaiter is only atached to this by a clip so can be removed.

    Anyway, I have a TT gearknob, saw it on ebay and thought it looked cool, and it does... everytime i open my glovebox lol.
    Have had it for months, you will need to cut a thread onto your gearstick, which isnt easy! i tried for about an hour with a small tap and die set then gave up lol.

    Think i might just sell it and buy a facelift knob!

    I asked the same question about the gear knob at the top of the page aparantly it is a TT one. Not sure if you can get it in 5 speed or not.

    Guys is it this one by any chance, its on this site http://www.vagparts.com/

    and if you type in gear knob in the search, it looks like the first one that pops up.
