How long are you legs mate?
Or was you driving with you leg on the dash? :eek:
I bet these things cost next too nothing to manufacture, but will doubt be at least £40+
Considering thats how much the wheel center caps cost.

You best bet might be to find a breakers yard, but ive not seen that many i-shifts in breaker yards.

the part itself is £63, now i have to find out how it's attached.
£63 that's quite a price. Is the dealer fitting it or you?

as my wallet disagrees with Honda spare part pricing i will repair it. let's just hope the glue and hospital bill does not exceed the part price :D

I heard of someone paying £1000 for a windscreen wiper stalk for an old Maserati... so £62 is not too bad.

(Just trying to cheer you up! - Things good be worse) :D

Thats a crazy price for a part like that!

Though I still don't understand how you managed to break it in the first place!
