Ask Joachim at BTS Autoteile.

He has shown me their newly reproduced emblems for the shift knobs recently and they looked quite nice to me.

Thanks for that info. I should be able to order it from either one of those sources mentioned above.

Rapandi, were you ever able to get ahold of one of these? Mine measures 31mm. Poorly thought out glue after refurbishing mine caused it to bubble (still kicking myself for this).

 

Thanks :)

Unfortunately, I couldn't find another one. Lol I just gave up and powered on to other parts of the car. I have for now put it in the hard basket....

IE now sells a wooden knob, I believe.

When they announced it a while back, I asked if the insert was available separately and they said it would be.

I do not recall the size, but will try a search.

you are quite welcome.

if it is not too much trouble, perhaps you could come back and tell us what you learn.

I am not having luck with my search yet....

 

edit- I think the IE knob post was on august 12, 2016, based on messages exchanged with another member about a knob.  I wonder if I can search the site by date...?

So I did have luck finding one that was close enough in size (29mm to my needed 31mm) so I decided to purchase. I found it on Amazon. And for 6 bucks I can't argue.

It does have a slight yellow tint compared to my old one but I think it goes well with the old look and my sahara color. Also, the fit isn't as bad as I thought. Her are before and after pics of the refurb process. You will notice the old roundel that I messed up in the before photo. FYI: do not use any adhesive that will eat away at the back :( live and learn
