Angry Ouch - New Gear Knob

Had a little accident yesterday when I was getting ready to go to work the car was covered in ice so thought I would start it up while I cleared the windows.

Wasn't taking enough notice removing the disklok from the steering wheel when it crashed onto the gear knob putting a couple of dents and a gouge in it.

Knew straight away I couldn't live with that so time to buy a new one...........

Net result just paid £75.25 this morning for a replacement how Honda can justify that price for a bit of machined metal is beyond me

Get the old one for sale on ebay Ian, I know what you mean when you say you couldn't live with it, but I'm sure someone can. You'll get some of your money back.

£70 for a plastic type r emblem and two stickers thats the one that gets me ,£75 for a gear knob seems resonable compared to that rip off .
