    I have one of these bad boys fitted to my S3, only it has gotten a few scratches from the previous owner (probably a ring has rubbed against it, feel free to comment!!).... i gather with it being 'machined' theres nothing i can do about it, although i would like to know for sure as they are £120 new and its annoying the **** outta me

    How do you get your s3 into 6th gear or reverse for that matter, as your gearknob is for a 5speed box??

    WELL THEN...

    Knobs arent supposed to be anywhere near machinery... unless you have S&M tendancies... and WTF were you doing letting the previous owner fettle your knob anyway??

    You should take it down Ceasars or summat, see if one of the nice ladies will give it a spit polish!! ;)

    u might be able to get it on a buffer could end up looking worse though, a good metal polish should get them out unless there deep. hope this of some help.

    cheers potter....finger, i thought about that....they seem cheap enough and easy to fit...... i like the fact that not many S3's have these type....
