    Default VXR Knob???

    Does anyone know whats different in the gearknobs between the VXR and the SRi's?. I'd like to fit one to my SRi if possible.

    Any ideas?

    As I understand it, the VXR gear knob consists of the knob, gear shaft, gator and surrounds... its not just a knob you fit to your existing setup.

    Thats why I didnt bother, cos its not the easiest job.... and also I found the Irmscher gear knob much better to use !!

    Hope that helps

    When I first read this thread title I thought you had encountered a driver who was using his VXR as an extension of his p e n i s.

    The knob is my next item to be modded, I like the look of the VXR one as it would go with the vxr steering wheel, would be interested to find out the cost/hassle involved in fitting

    I was told last week by the local Main dealer service dept that changing the sri gear knob to the vxr one may involve new gear shaft & gaitor, They are supposed to letting me know if they can fit one prior to me collecting new car, they do have gearknob inserts that are specific to type of gearbox, but as i don't know what model gearbox the new sri's have i left it to them to sort out and invoice me when i collect car, so they will either just change the insert for a vxr one if available for the sri gearbox, fit a vxr gearknob, or if they both fail then they will supply and fit an irmy gear knob.

    My knob popped off in my old Vec, after 120K of wear it shot off when I lifted the collar to put it in reverse, had to glue it back on.

    Whats the easiest way to remove the knob of a new car I don't want to wait another 100k for it to come off of it's own accord?
