8P S3s do have rather nice looking knobs, I must say
Didn`t staple mine it just trapped in place nice and tight with the two tabs on the lugs underneath
Same here I was worried at first not being stapled but is nice and tight once the plastic base it clipped in
Well finally have now got my new knob on order after having issues with the code, turned out to be the 'W' needed dropping from the part no.
Very excited to get my new knob...
Cheers Matt, another £80 pound gone
Can i put on my audi s3 ? or only with BAM can put ?
Yes I'm sure You can mate:icon_thumright:
I have just fitted my new gear knob and must say I am very impressed with it. My old one, seemingly like everyone elses, had become worn on the metal ring that surrounds the gate decal was easily removed thanks to the step by step guide on here. Next I fitted the new base retainer and didn't bother stapleing it, just tucked it in and reattached the knob!! Looks great, went for the red stitching to match the outer colour of the car.
Thanks to everyone who has posted on here.
Jamie,I was stuck in traffic today and looked down and thought excellent job
Good stuff! Get some pics up fella
A quick pic from my iphone, well impressed with it, just need to sort out the climate control buttons they really **** me off!!
you did it the same way as me but ive got white stitching
Here is how much it goes on ebay usa...
there is only ONE on ebay lol...
$175 flipping heck!
with current exchange rates it works out to about 120GBP!!!
That's one very expensive knob
I have the cream stitching gaiter and it matches my cream interior perfectly. Great mod.
yep its super expensive!
i will have to buy it from uk and get it shipped here!
Anyone got the correct part number for the s3 gear knob and white stitched gaitor?
Just use this part number: W8P0 863 278 CC SZN, and they said it was in correct.
Can anyone confirm if this gear knob fits the pre-facelift... has anyone fitted it?
I had the same issue at my dealer Dani, turned out they just needed to drop the 'W' at the beginning of the code...
Yeah it's fine, im getting one for mine
Wasnt sure if it was that or not, cheers leggy.
Good stuff, cheers! Think I will be grabbing me one of those as well!
Bump for S3_Kev
okok theres a few prices flying about here....how much is this as Stoke want £195!
Lmfai, stoke audi bin smoking crack? Waki audi quoted me £80.95 for the gear knob and white stitch gear gaitor.
Hope that helps, that was on thursday so its a accurate price.
they normally cheaper than most mate....must have not got the right one
Can anyone tell me if this is still the correct part number for the gear knob as I contacted my local audi dealer and they said it wasnt right ?
It is the correct part number,I used it to order mine....drop the 'w'
did you order your one recently ?
was the price still the same ?
different dealers will price differently as will TPS..... the price above i assume will be almost trade
I sound like I'm on comission but contact the member pjmspeedy as he gets dealer bits at good prices and can post
Will this fit on a 2000 model S3??
Yes mate I fitted it to my pre-facelift S3
that wheel turns me on
I know mate it's so nice to use. I might be selling it soon if you're interested (I'm keeping the airbag for my new one tho!)
is it hard to fit?
Very nice. Not worth the airbag not working though.
