watch out, I nearly selected the "used" item to my cart by mistake. I imagine that to be more worn than my 10k miles OCD version.

Well thats as clear as mud as to which one to order!

Since when do rubber buttons get called a Gearbox plate?

£126.32 for two buttons! Only Maserati.......

I did it myself, there are many hidden screws and clips but just be patient and it will be fine. You'll need to look under the rubber mats in the cupholders, under the ashtray too. Patience and gentleness and you'll manage it easily enough.

I can’t seem to see where to select the carbon fibre one? What is the cost of the carbon fibre one?
Thanks Tom
I got mine from Graypaul Edinburgh, their price was very reasonable however it's not carbon on my car. I know the carbon one is much more cash, i'd be tempted to order the standard black leatherette version and see if you can move the carbon piece. Not idea where you select on the Eurospares website though, I'd call them and order direct.

Ok thanks I’ve called them and they are going to find out and let me know.
I don’t suppose anyone has got an old used carbon fibre one that they want to sell?
Thanks tom.

You would be very lucky to find a used one I think.
When I was Changing mine it was circa 130 notes for the leatherette one and almost 500 for the carbon one.

I'm guessing Tom is after the carbon shroud bit to put on a new standard unit? A used selector would have worn buttons for sure.
If you had the standard part in your hand, that carbon covering wrap would probably look almost perfect. 3M make it. There are some great tutorials on YouTube.

Yes plan would be to buy new cheaper leather one and put the new buttons in an old carbon fibre unit.....that’s if someone has one that they would like to part with!?
I wouldn’t want to wrap it, might not look right?
Thanks tom

Wrapping it would indeed look ridiculous (if it was possible) as the faux leather one is rounded padded and relatively soft whereas the carbon one is angular and a different shape.
