    Tried on there too mate,

    The annoying thing is, look at the pic of the river elm wood effect one, that's a nice clear pic so you can see exactly what you're buying, the pics of the granite and granite-platinum effect ones look exactly the same to me, the photos aren't even clear, they're obviously going to be different to one another but you just can't tell from the pics, cheers anyway though mate

    I'd really appreciate pics from members cars, I think that will give the clearest basis for comparison

    Hmm, they look very smart mate, I had the Aluminium ones in my Astra G, were they hard to fit? I remember in the Astra both the OE gearknob and handbrake simply pulled off with a fair bit of brute force

    Then with the new gearknob, you fitted a small steel black ring and fixed it to the shaft with 3 grub screws, then screwed the gearknob onto the ring (This sounds so wrong, all this talk of knobs rings and shafts ! :P)

    With the handbrake you glued the inside with silkaflex then fitted it and held it in place til it had started to go off, is it the same thing with the Vec??
