Anyone have some good pics of the new V2 knob, the pics I found were really dark or really washed out.
And what is involved with making it fit, and will it work with my B&M?
b&m will accept the factory knob and since the v2 knob fits factory shifter it will fit b&m.

Ron, just a suggestion, but you might want to give Luke a call if you get a chance. Maybe he'd know what's involved.

All there is to it is stretching the leather over the factory knob to remove it and taking the V2 knob and doing it in reverse to put it on the stock bushing. Thats it. I'm taking a couple pictures of the process today sometime. I've just been really busy.

Luke wasn't sure if it would fit when he sent it to me but i'm sure he read the thread and knows how it works now.

Thanks, stuckey. :thumbsup: I was sort of bumping it for Ron since he hadn't gotten a response to his question (plus he's a nice guy).

The knob on the boot.


The knob removed


Underside of the boot with knob attached. You will want to press with your thumb on the bottom of the knob while stretching the leather around it.


It should come out like this



You will notice a clip on the inside of the knob. You can try to take it off this way but I was scared I would break them. So I just heated the leather and stretched it over.

Thanks for the walk-through stuckey. Sounds simple enough. I'm probably going to go ahead and do this...except in swade :drool:

:histeric: Good Luck post a pic or two of yours when done.

Just so people don't see the pics of the fake aluminum overlay and think everyone likes them and they should get them, I hate it.

No offense, but it looks fake. Badly fake. It looks like plastic silver bubbly stuff. Now, you can argue that it looks better than a dash that's peeling and looking splotchy. I can accept that. But I'm still not a fan...

our dash is prettu dull and lifeless looking. i'm not sure i would do a dash kit but that looks like a decent improvement over what we have stock.

I recognize that dash kit. It was in one of the CTS-V's that I had looked at. There are different levels for the kits. There are simulated aluminum like he has on the one pictured and there are also real materials. The one I saw had the real carbon fiber kit. It was thinner than the simulated ones. I have to admit, it actually looked pretty good. I barely noticed it at first looking through the window since it was still black.

Here is the link to the kits.
