    Gear Knob

    Wife had proper go of car tonight and the only think she has complained about is the gear knob! The problem being is the chrome ring around the top of the knob is split and catching her finger!!! Could anyone point me in the direction of a new one. I am thinking about standard but if there is some nice after market ones which look nice and not halfraudly out there i am willing to look....

    If any one got pics of them in there car please post..

    Thanks

    S3?

    If so the new 8P S3 gear knob looks great. The chrome flaking is common. You could pick it off in the mean time.
