    S3 Manual Exclusive Aluminium Gear Knob Part No.& Price

    Morning All,

    After making an enquiry to Audi UK and as the title suggest I have been able to obtain price and part no. for the exclusive manual gear knob for those S3 owners who may wish to change the OEM.

    PART NO. 8V0863278G HVI

    PRICE £85.91 plus VAT


    The parts can be purchased from the Parts Department and fitted (presumably you can fit it yourself) at your local Audi Centre.

    So there is a stainless steel footrest for RHD UK cars now?

    Might be obvious this but why does it matter what hand drive it is? Still goes footrest, clutch, brake, throttle...no matter if it LHD or RHD

    because it fits on to the other side of the car where, presumably, the fitting is different. If you look at both sides of the passenger foot well, you'll see they're different

    PS If you do manage to get a SS footrest fitted let me know! I don't think you will though.

    From the picture I believe it's simply plug and play. You unclip and remove the base from the centre console and clip the new one in after placing the new head over the gear stick shaft? It's designed by Germans so it must be simple!

    Surely not? If originally designed for the smaller A1 quattro and then made available for European customers then I'm hoping the sportback will make it look at home.

    I know it's not strictly 'oem' but if you really want a RHD aluminium footrest then they are available..

    How do they work, do you just stick them on? Or do they replace an existing plastic fitting?

    from the web site -
    THEY ARE SUPPLIED PRE DRILLED WITH FIXING BOLTS AND MOUNTING HARDWARE.

    A 10 MINUTE MOD THAT ENHANCES AND COMPLIMENTS THE INTERIOR TRIM.

    I personally wouldn't want to drill holes into the existing footrest in order to fit one of these. A few well placed industrial strength sticky pads would do the same job and at least it is removable without causing damage
