Matt, theres no reason that i can think of why the later model gear knob wouldnt fit. Both pre-facelift and current model use the same gearbox and control linkage so it should fit.

The facelifted models gear knob is removed by getting access to the underside of the leather gaiter and removing the circlip that audi use to hold the knob onto the shaft. That circlip has to be replaced with the same one and not a jubliee clip or it will poko out of the leather.

I hope this is a bit more clearer for you, if not post back and i will see what i can do

Cheers

got mine about two weeks ago for my 2001 S3. a aluminium ABT gearknob. looks real nice but very pricy. 60GB for the gearknob + 13GB for delivery. the problem is that u can not fit it your self so would have to take to an audi dealer who will charge you half an hour's worth of labuor at 42.50GB, a total of 115.50GB "ouch" smashfreakB.gif but its the best i've seen so far
