Gear Knob genuine OEM STI 5 Speed from RHD Japan - £42.06p including delivery & didn't get hit with any import tax

http://www.rhdjapan.com/sti-shift-knob-5mt-leather-red-stitch.html

Leather gear gaiter off ebay and matches perfectly with gear knob - £22.96 delivered (and a bit of a pain in the arse to fit  lol! )

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231159297700?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Gear knob was near 100 quid If I remember

Under 50 quid is much more like it

Well this is a genuine Subaru STI OEM one - even Andy Kindon asked me where I got it as he hadn't seen one like it with the red stitching for years - knob feels nice in the hand  lol!

Thanks lads for all the nice comments. Yeah Steve oil cap & battery clamp came from Japan, where I first imported these for the Terminator 2 years ago. Then Billy saw them on my car at Andy Kindon's and asked me where I had got them and he then imported them, sold his Scoob and then sold his oil cap and battery clamp to members on here  Wink  So although they aren't as unique as they were when I first got them, they are still quality parts that look class on any Subaru engine bay. Worth the money.

Yeah I like the matt/satin black intercooler, seen them before but I just think it might be a bit too much black in the bay - but I will photoshop it and see what it looks like. Got my induction hose and air box hose to fit yet.
