I bought one a couple of weeks ago to replace my original where the chrome had dulled and pitted a little. It feels chunkier than the old one and has an alcantara trim on the front edge. I also bought the matching gaiter for it which is also nice.

I've got the Performance handbrake lever and it's worth the money. It looks and feels more upmarket with the alcantara. I say go for both if you can afford them as they're pricey

Definitely not smaller. If anything, I think it's a bit wider and heavier... Feels and looks really nice though

I've got the perf gear lever and handbrake. Both are welcomed additions to the interior as they feel and look much better. Worth the money personally.

Does anyone know the part numbers for each, I'm tempted with all 3!

Personally I'd go for the ZHp/clubsport gearknob instead.

Looks much more OEM fits in with the interior better

hi, I'll get a for sale thread up soon but if you are interested I have an M Performance gear knob and alcantara gater I'll be selling soon (came fitted to the car I just bought but didn't really get on with them)

I also have a ZHP gear knob I'll be selling (used for one short test drive so basically brand new) and also a leather SE gator to match (bought as new so a great match).

As good as the ZHP was I just found I preferred the shape of the standard M Sport gear knob so switched to that.


EDIT: Sorry just opened some of the links posted on here and they all seem to be for automatic cars, my ZHP and M Performance gear knobs are both 6 speed manual!

hi, I'll try and find some time to get photos done and for sale listing up, will let you know when done.

Ps I'll be selling the gear knob and gaiter together as a pair - don't want to be left with leftover bits (the standard M sport gearknob/gaiter are glued together anyway so unless planning to butcher it with scissors you'd need new gaiter anyway).

So will be:
M Performance gear knob with alcantara gaiter as one listing,
ZHP gear knob with leather SE gaiter as second listing.

thanks

I've fitted the performance gearknob, gaitor, handbrake sleeve and pedals. Mines a manual though so gearknob is extra small
