It's the best you'll get from me - I'm not searching the interwibble for purple knob ever again. :oops:

Too late, you will now have all sorts of ads wanting to sell you purple gear knobs!

Well thanks for all your, er, help! :lol:

I think the thread is the same. I know people have fitted Elise gearknobs and with a little research it would appear that the one I have seen photos of is from S1/early S2 Elise, therefore this would fit. (Later Elise’s have a different thread)

PS I saw some black ones on eBay with red or blue lettering and did look to see if they had a purple version! :P

Max and Andy put a purple pool ball in their Palacio Elan. Can’t find any pictures on here but it looked quite good.

Looks like 26 minutes between your 2 posts, no wonder it'll be difficult to erase those images ;-)

Let us know how it goes Kathryn, I might think about changing mine. Actually, at the moment I'd only need 2, 4 and R on mine!

Lotus parts numbers:
C111F0002F - gear knob
A111U0004F - gear gate sticker for the top

I think the biggest problem with that later gear knobs is the fact that they went to a 6 speed box, so the gate pattern is incorrect... unless you’re going to do a gear box replacement as well, though some might just argue that’s a bit of overkill.
