    New S3 (8P) Gearknob

    Hi all I have recently purchased the 8p S3 Gearknob and Gaiter surround, I spent a while trying to find the part number only only to find there is a new part number for it!
    Thought I would post it up here so it would be easy for people to find when using the search,
    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

    Interested to see some pictures, but it is quite pricey. Does it just directly swap over the with the 8L gaitor and knob?

    My original 8L gear knob is looking tired, I was thinking of fitting the Forge brushed aluminium version, which is also about 60. There are enough S3 badges in there anyway.

    Matt, where did you order that gear knob from, which dealer ??

    I've just phoned up mine to place an order and the bloke is telling me the code doesn't exist. He said it's usually 9-10 digits long so I said well miss of the first 'W' and the last 5 letters and still no joy. To be fair the bloke on the phone really does sound disinterested...

    Cheers..

    Right then guys I've sort of made a bit of a how to

    The original gear knob starting to look a bit tatty as the silver ring started to pick off





    First of all you will need to pull the leather base up, Its just clipped in but a good pull should get it up



    You will need to lift the leather up to get to the securing clip, I used a small flat screwdriver to unclip it off, The new gearknob comes with one so no need to try and save it



    The old gearknob will now pull off with a good tug



    Its then just a case of changing over the gaiters



    Should all be pretty obvious from this point





    Once you have it all back together it all it needs is a good firm push and it will locate



    Much better!



    Cheers Matt

    To be honest mate I was looking on eBay for a good while and nothing much turned up, I thought I'd save a fair bit on ebay but as there only 60 odd quid from Audi that's prob the best bet.
