    Hi Guys,

    I want to replace my gear shifter (knob) on my A3. I have the standard ugly little one on there now and want something thats a bit bigger, feels better to grip and looks better. I want to get red leather stitching on the gaiter and handbrake as well. I was thinking of the S3 one but i dont want the S3 branding.
    I would like something like the A3 DSG gear pictured at the bottom but I drive a manual so something like that without the button?

    Want to know what you guys recommend in sense of looks and size.

    here are a few that i have seen online (some are tacky i know but still just options):

    1. Saas Black with Red Stitching:

    2.Audi S-Line:

    3. Black Leather

    5. TT S-Line Gear

    9. A3 DSG gear

    I like the TT one and the S3 one but know what you mean about not wanting the S3 logo.

    I have a DSG so have the shifter as per the last pic and I hate it. I can't believe you like it. I'm hoping to change it for something (don't know what) as soon as possible. It just looks so huge and reminds me of a golf club although it doesn't look quite so bad in that pic. The only saving grace is that with it being the DSG it means I don't have to pay much attention or touch it that often :)

    Does anyone know if that S3 badge can be taken out of the gear knob and replaced with something else? perhaps like an s-line badge?

    I'm leaning towards the TT S-Line gear right now as its the only one that looks better than the standard... does anyone know if its bigger than the standard one?

    the TTRS one is just like the TTS one, but has the red ring in-between the metal and the black plastic bit at the top... as in the S3

    I think i want one of those now... i wonder if it can be modded to light up the red ring when the headlights are switched on? I remember someone doing it to the S3 one a couple years back.

    haha they are nice
    anything is possible, it may involve boring out a chunk of the top from the reverse to fir an LED strip, but only way is ti get one and see how its put together
