    Bringing up an old thread here, are there different part numbers for different colour stitching? In my head I'm saying yes...if so, what's the part number for knob with red stitching?

    Here's mine. it's been in for a while now.

    Sorry about poor picture.

    I didn't use new gaitor as I felt that new leather and baseball stitching doesn't match the plain Black (and worn in) Recaro leathers.

    It's a lovely touch though and i far better than the old ones.

    It does, but the gaitor doesnt fit properly, is very tight at the front.

    I changed the gaitors over and used the original one especially as was in good condition, was a quick simple job. Feels and looks so much better.

    Audi do it with Red stitching on the gaiter or White, I will be using the Original gaiter surround so wasn't to bothered on colour of the stitching

    This is the number for white stitching: 8P0 863 278 CC SZN

    The price is �61.87 +Vat Hope this helps a few people out.

    Cheers Matt
    hi mate,you say you are using your original gaiter?will the one that comes with the knob not fit,or is that just preference?il buy one but will want the one with red stitching if I can be fit?

    If you have a read through the whole thread you will see that many have fitted the new gaiter, think its a tight fit but is possible

    Yup - when i did mine the NEW 8P plastic base bezel thing is a different shape to the older 8L shape.......so you have to undo the staples holding the gaiter to the base.........then fit the new leather over the old base.....i didnt bother re-stapling or gluing or anything.

    so you have old base, new leather, new knob.............and looks schweet!!!!! :D well worth doing!

    Great job.

    Or...just take the knob off, use old gaitor, sell new gaitor on eBay and bobs your uncle.

    These S3 Gear Knobs look absolutely brilliant but the question I have is whether they fit the 8L model and whether they are able to be used on the 5 speed variants like the 1.6 and 1.8? (obviously it will still say 6th gear but you just can't select it).

    the 8p definitely fits the 8L.....this thread shows it and i have done it also......NB the difference mentioned on the gaiter though.

    the knob should have no effect on 5 or 6 gears........it is literally just a knob.

    Does anyone have a good condition (unscuffed leather/ chrome ring) standard s3 knob kicking around?.
    I prefer the original to the 8p s3 knob, however mines showin 85ks worth of grabbing now.
