    the quality is first class and fitting it was easy but it tells you to wire it into the ciggy lighter. i tapped into the ashtray light cause its much easier. its a brilliant fit and feels good in the hand.

    got one like that in mine but without the s line, during the day mine looks like the standard one, as they only illuminate with the lights turned on, on the car

    I really like the look of these, and have considered one for mine. Can you get them for 5sp?

    Looks good though mate, very impressed. Did you have to remove much (if any) of the centre console to fit it?

    haha! people are haters sometimes aren't they! I doubt i'll ever do it as I would prefer to lower it first to be honest, I hate it looking like it's on stilts. Or, even better still I might just save my money for a better car or fun stuff for my bike :)

    I think they look good though personally.

    thanks guys. like i said it was easy to wire up cause i tapped into the ashtray light that means i didnt have to strip anything out. and it only comes on when you turn your lights on.

    Gets my thumbs up alright and I cant for the life of me understand why someone would call this tacky. Its not like a chrome Halfrauds knob with green LED's. This looks OEM.

    Defo gonna get one at some stage...

    Nice one Bass

    It does appear to be marmite that's for sure. I quite like it, but would need to see one in the flesh before I ever considered it though as it has to be pretty bob on to be an oem look-a-likey.
