Even though I prefer the face lift s tronic gear knob I still think the golf ball s tronic gear knob is the best I went thru the worry of the heat and twist when fitting one to my wife’s A3 8p years ago. So I bought an OEM s tronic gear knob with no gaiter thinking that the knob would use the existing gaiter but the square front side of the current knob prevents separating the knob from gaiter so I thought I was stuck until I remembered that I still had the old A3 gaiter Obviously the clip in surround is different but I thought it would only be a matter of undoing the staples and swapping them over. Big mistake. The leather doesn’t stretch! So now I’m kinda stuck as I fear a gaiter for a C7 that fits the round gear knob might be hard to find unless the pre facelift one works. See pics below Any advice will be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance.
