Default Leather 'n LED shift **** {Pics}

Wanted to share pics of my knew **** ()

I was browsing through eBay and come across a **** I hadn't seen before. I checked on the forum and didn't find much on it, with the exception of member "alcoed" in a post from last year.

I went ahead and looked at the link on eBay and chose to visit the manufacturers website directly. The manufacturer is in Germany and has several options to choose from.

You can choose from 3 **** styles, 3 **** trim finishes, along with several stitch and LED colors. Their interactive website shows you what your choice will look like as a finished product.

I ordered the **** on Thursday and it arrived on Monday, super quick! Total cost shipped was around $110 converted from Euros.

Anyways, let's get on to the pics!





I ordered my **** with a satin trim finish, they have black and chrome as other finish options. Also chose black stitching and white for the LED color.

New **** with old c6 ****.


These shift ***** are for both c5 & c6, BTW. They secure to the shaft via 3 Allen bolts.

Here's the underside showing LED wiring, power and ground.



Some installed pics, light off and on. I wired the power to the climate control so that the light is only on with the parking/headlights.















The **** feels great in the hand and looks handsome to the eye. It also gives a smooth, even glow without being too bright or giving off hotspots.

If anyone wants more info on where to get this, shoot me a PM (or just google search it) as they are not a forum vendor.

That looks really good. And the price seems reasonable.

Not much into showy, lighty stuff... but that really modernized the interior! I like my Twistedshifterz 1 7/8" white ball, but it does date the car a bit. I think this just became my new fave. PM me the info please.
Edit; the C6 **** is one of my least fave, so good move IMO

Damnit, quit spending my money
I picked the same model but went with chrome, blue stiching, and blue LED. Go figure

A really cool find, really highlights the interior. I'll have to invest in one of these after getting my hands on a C5....

eBay is ok but I think it works better on their website because it's interactive.

I bought one of these over a year ago from the same supplier in Germany. Very well made and not hard to install.

I wouldn't think I would like it from the sound of it, but it is really nice looking. I'll look it up.
