Thanks and I agree the red could be closer to the original. I will send the original button to the maker to see if they can get a closer match.

Bloody hell - again. I can't believe the number of these buttons you're selling.   ???

Just what are people doing to the originals on their cars that they all need replacing?

 I only need to sell 100,000 and I've made $1M at $10 each lol..

 

As to what happened to all the originals? I assume replaced with some tacky Autotecnica knob from autobahn :P

Hey Guys the gear knob i have has a larger hole to fit the incert and the ones Gavin sent (not your fault mate) are smaller and dont fit. Are there any gear knobs floating around that are the 240z ones that someone has a extra to sell?

 

Cheers

Do you have a wooden knob or another style (leather)? These should be the same as stock 240z size ones.
