Hey man, it's just a genuine manual shifter boot, it comes with a plastic bush in the top of it to hold it up flush with the gear knob on a manual shift lever, just rip it out and fold the boot in so it sits on the auto shifter handle tightly so it doesn't fall down. Looks trick IMO and gets a few people wondering WTF is going on. Is it manual? Is it auto? Haha.

I just extended the wiring and now have a switch that is dangling under the ash tray, im yet to find a convenient, but factory looking spot to put the switch (im a big fan of the standard 'factory' look heehee). I once bought a power/economy switch which suited a column shift falcon (it goes in where the aerial switch is) but seeing as i have the aerial switch there already i was going to put it between that and the demister switch BUT (breath) it didn't fit, or look right...DOH!

So...thats the story of my power economy switch, next week i'll tell you a story about my cigarette lighter socket! :D So much for steering wheels haha, sorry for taking over.

As for wheel, yeah, the AU momo ones look good. I have one the same as mongoose, so look at his pic. Very nice feeling wheel, and no worries about legalities
