Upgrade gear knob.

S3 Rav

Registered User
Hi all,

This is something a lot of the 8l guys do to update the s3 gearknob to the 8P version which was a lot nicer.

Has anyone done anything like this. If so, is it a straight forward swap like the 8l S3 is?

I've changed my prefacelift shifter for a facelift one, it was pretty easy, just remove the old one, twist the plastic rod that the button hooks on to around 90 degrees, stick the new shifter on
