3 BITS OF INFO I FORGOT TO MENTION:

1) YOU NEED TO BUY / RE-USE THE METAL CLIP THAT I TOOK OFF AT THE START, TO SECURE THE GEAR KNOB (I bought a new one from AUDI, about £1.80)

2) When you are about to put the NEW GEAR-knob onto the modified Rod, this is the point where you pull the Plastic Rod out of the gear stick (THE GREEN HOLDING ROD in my pictures). But do NOT push the Shifter button in, until the Gear knob is all push down into place, and that's when you can carefully move the new gear knob into the different modes (N, D, P, R, S) etc

3) You have to snip of the end of the screw you fit into the rod, with a good pair of cutters

Haha literally just cleaned the inside of the car to take pictures as I was listing the car for sale. That's the cleaning spray. Pointless putting it onto a manual even if it did fit, but something I don't have the answer to I'm afraid

Nice guide, thanks a lot! I have a question about the metal clip. How did you secure it on the shifter? Did you have to press it with any tool or did you just put it on a plastic base rod of a gear knob and then somehow clicked on place? I mean, did you have to tighten the metal clip after you fit the gear knob on a shifter?

I received a s-line manual gear knob today but am hesitating to fit it as I need this last bit of information to avoid damaging anything.
