    Well finally have now got my new knob on order after having issues with the code, turned out to be the 'W' needed dropping from the part no.

    Very excited to get my new knob...

    Cheers Matt, another £80 pound gone :)

    I have just fitted my new gear knob and must say I am very impressed with it. My old one, seemingly like everyone elses, had become worn on the metal ring that surrounds the gate decal was easily removed thanks to the step by step guide on here. Next I fitted the new base retainer and didn't bother stapleing it, just tucked it in and reattached the knob!! Looks great, went for the red stitching to match the outer colour of the car.

    Thanks to everyone who has posted on here.

    Anyone got the correct part number for the s3 gear knob and white stitched gaitor?

    Just use this part number: W8P0 863 278 CC SZN, and they said it was in correct.

    I had the same issue at my dealer Dani, turned out they just needed to drop the 'W' at the beginning of the code...
