    Some very good work there, well done. Did you use Epoxy on the gear shift plastic?

    No I didn't have a dremel to trim off excess epoxy but will hope to do so soon although the rod itself seemed perfectly straight and strong(as per Nigel's guide I did it very slowly).

    The tricky part was getting the button to sit in right when putting on the new knob took four attempts and after each failed attempt I had to reset the button with a coat hanger wire. I'd highly recommend it as it can be done if you follow Nigel's guide and really makes an impact on the interior

    Its certainly a mod that I've got in the pipeline, I'm just trying to build up the courage to do it, haha.

    I was so worried doing it but once it cooled down and was straight it seemed fine and then I was delighted with myself once the new knob clicked into place.

    Go for it!

    I've done the mods that you've done really apart from the gear shifter as mines a manual. I don't think there is anything else I shall be doing to mine...

    Shame, in some strange way it's always nice to have something new to fit every now and then

    It is indeed, always brightens up our Saturday mornings

    How about a Rear View Camera for the RNS-E once fitted?

    Strong work!

    I've just fitted Diamond Vision bulbs and Trups LED sidelights today too! The Diamond Vision are so white it makes the sidelights look yellow!

    That would be cool but is the wiring from the camera to the RNS-e not be a nightmare?

    I thought exactly the same thing, when I got the Diamond Vision I thought that woud be enough but the factory yellow sidelights ruin the look hence the Kit from Trups was ideal.

    I've done all the easy interior lights and rear plate but the puddle lights are tricky
