    Handbrake & Gearknob ideas

    OK so I am looking at some of the quicker mods I can do before PVS (hopefully staying dry in the process as its now pi$$ing it down again )

    I'm looking into handbrake handles and gear knobs etc to go with the sexy black alcantara gaiters I bought a couple of weeks ago (thanks glenn ).

    I want something "more luxurious" than the standard fit or the chrome/alloy ones that seem to be doing the rounds, maybe something along the lines of these:

    PORSCHE BOXSTER UPGRADED GEARKNOB


    PORSCHE 996 UPGRADED GEARKNOB


    these are a tad pricey though (top one is £225 and bottom one is £165!) especially as I don't want the gaiter

    so what have people got? and any rough prices would be good too!
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    have found a Veccy GSi gearknob as well, may sound silly but I assume it will fit easily enough? only thing I'm not sure of is the lift up reverse...

    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I had a look at those Gaz, but haven't yet seen one with the reverse bottom right (under 5th). is it lift reverse compatible as well? May go for the handbrake handle, but still am looking for luxury feel...
