Re: So..PZ Suspension

I recently had a PZ set fitted as an upgrade and I was also a bit worried about ride quality. But within minutes on first drive I realised there is no sacrifice at all.

Wil, a daft question,but why don't you measure your own, or is it the thread pitch/size you need?
Yup thread width, although it does sound like I can just unscrew it and measure it....just hope to God it goes back on again :lol:

Re: Gear Knob Upgrade

Dammit, I know I'm going to regret asking but does my current knob just screw off??
So if I twist it enough it'll just come away in my hand?

Not that I'm looking for a bigger one, obviously.

Gear Knob-Joke Upgrade

Hi
Possibly a silly question, but does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement gear stick knob. I'm not sure I much like the default one.
