    Question VXR gearknob & steering wheel inserts

    Hi all, apologies if this is in the wrong section or the information is already on the site somewhere, but I'd like to do some small mods to my Vec C SRi 2006 (V6 CDTi)

    I would like to add a couple of VXR bits. I have seen these gearknob inserts on ebay (more than one seller): -

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VXR-OPC-Re...item4cf9f8a403

    Where can I get a gearknob from that will take this insert? My current gearknob is round so completely different.

    I would also like to fit the VXR steering wheel insert, but there appear to be different shades/colours. My car has dark silver/titanium coloured trim, but I have heard about people buying the wrong ones in error.

    Thanks

    You will either need a gearknob from a XPII, Vectra or astra VXR

    I have asked the same question of my neighbour who is a tech at a local vaux dealer and he says i would need the whole VXR gear lever form the gearbox up as the inserst are not interchangable !
