Howdy all,

I've got a Trust/Greddy aftermarket to put into my s15 and have a few questions...

- I know SOME replacements to specifically suit the s15 has the little attachment that keeps the gear boot up, if it doesn't come with one what are you using to hold the gear boot up?

- and with the stock item, can i just take the actually gear knob off (A) or does the whole thing need to come off ( B )?

I'd rather keep the gray bit on if the gear boot is just gonna sit there.

Thanks!!

Nah mate the stocker is one piece item. So in most if not all cases you'll lose the boot skirt!

yeah kind of defeats the purpose of spending money trying to improve the gear knob when at the end it looks worse than it did to start with.

I have a $200 Isotta gear knob just sitting here, because it looked like crap on my S15 with the gear boot all stuffed

Well my car never came with the stock gear knob. Came with the gt500 knob with gearboot staying down so I\'m used to see it like that

I have the same gearknob as this but without that gearboot holder

I think the aircond module is hidden in the glovebox

Yes it's a very nice gearknob, good shape for your hands but lacks abit in weight though. Get the rest from where... lol

I put a 150mm dildo knob in my car. I took the stock gearknob and cut the gearknob were it meets the skirt and then glued the dildo knob to the skirt and bobs your uncle.
