    talk to PJMSpeedy - he can normally match most of those eBay "Buy Now prices" (i.e. just below stealer prices)

    Cheers lostbok, This might sound dumb but did they fit the s-line gearknob in cars with 5 speed? I just assumed they were fitted to 6 speed cars hence the reason for looking on fleabay for a 5 speed version.
    I'll check with him and find out.
    Thanks

    pretty sure there's an S-Line version of the 2.0 FSI petrol, which think is 5-speed...

    okay... I stand corrected (well, self-corrected ).....

    Looks like there was never a B6 2.0 petrol S-Line..... or 1.9TDI 100PS... or 1.8T 150PS... or 2.4.... and couldn't think of any more that were likely to have 5 speed, so had a look at the B7's, since 90% of the interiors are interchangable.... I assume the gaiter / gear-shift is too....

    The B7 1.6 S-Line is 5 speed...

    As is the B7 2.0 20V S-Line...

    oooh.... and the B7 1.8T FWD 160PS.... (but NOT the quattro!).

    Okay, I'm going to stop now before the uber-geek alarm goes off!!

    the 5 speed badge from your existing gear knob is an exact fit, i bought one and had the same problem and just used my old badge.
    the gaitor however will not fit your car, its for an A3

    i bought one of those in 6 speed, you need to remove the surround at the bottom from the new one, and replace it with your original. its a bit of a stretch to get the new gaiter onto the old surround but looks good when fitted. hard to explain, easy to do.
