Hi looking for help does the gearknob plastic legend come off ? I Have been given a nice 6 speed leather gearknob to swop with my plain 5 speed, but cant quite figure out if its possible to swop the plastic bits around. We know where reverse is supost to be !!!! but with the wrong legend a stranger / garage mechanic etc would never find it. Cheers mike.:confused:

Hi, yes. The best way is use a dainty flad headed screw driver or swiss pen knife. What ever you use, deal with care, be harsh if sliped across the smooth chrome finish :)

I upgraded to carbon/leather gearstick, it feels superb! Never looked back. It is nicely weighted feels even nicer to change gear!

Why not even make that gearchange even better?
For under 200 pound you can make the gearchange magical- fit a short shift kit, it truely feels like a Porsche 911 gear change, you would love it!
