    An after market one will never fit or look as good as an OEM one. THe Best looking one IMHO is the S3 version that has parallel silver stitching in it, like this.

    where did you get the gear knob from? is it the standard knob or the S-line one?

    i too am interested in a gear gaitor... i think i could have a potential supplier but just need to confirm.
