I can see that the current gear knob is mighty well attached and that the correct way is to replace the lever and knob attached? is that right as I like so many I read here, want to change the small football style one for the shapely VXR style.

BUT!!! I see the new Astra and Insignia both have the same design of gear lever and wonder if anyone on here works at a Vx dealer and can find out if they would fit in the Vectra? Many parts are compatible and another avenue I am looking at is either an Alfa 159 or Saab 9-3 Aero one as they use the same tranny from what I have read
