    An after market one will never fit or look as good as an OEM one. THe Best looking one IMHO is the S3 version that has parallel silver stitching in it, like this.

    From this supplier on ebay - Audi A1/A3/A4/A5/TT/Q5 Leather Shift Knob 6 OEM | eBay -received in 3 days from Hungary

    I'll have to try to source a used S3 gaiter as Audi want £85 for theirs but that comes with the standard knob

    Let me know about the gaiter please
