    I know its been asked loads before and I have been through the search but im still confused as too which gear knobs will fit onto my 2002 Audi A3 1.6 Sport. It has the facelift dash as far as im aware so which gearknobs will fit from other models?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    8p s3 ones will with a few mods. Search it on here. Just ordered myself one but it's apparently coming from "Germany". I paid £93 for mine with red stitching.

    Right thanks, but im not looking for an expensive upgrade, I just want to replace the damaged one thats currently on the car but just wondered what else will fit on, ie golf, polo etc as there are no a3 ones on ebay for a reasonable price atm.

    For about £50ish Forge do one, or are you looking at breaker prices? Try ebay for any a3/s3 that are being broken and ask the sellers if they can pull your (replacement) knob off.

    You need to use an object that's big enough and stiff enough to satisfy a woman, as god didn't gift you with anything of your own... :drag:
