:cheers Hi all,
Pos a world first??? http://media.putfile.com/RX8Bosealloyknob004
Hope the link works, please be patient!
I was thinking about starting the whole \'nice knob\' conversation again, but I think thats best left in the past!
First time ive seen an rx8 dash at night, looks very cool, is it all how it comes (apart from the knob!) or have you done some of the other bits aswell
Cheers ScuttleRX....my knob\'s had a lot said about it already :D .
Yeh, the lighting is standard, I really like the way the back light on the clocks changes so much :).
By way of an up-date I have just received an email from Pettit Racing in the US which explains the pricing for these items (choice word!). I would imagine that other than fitting the rx8, there may well be other\'s with rotarie\'s that could possibly make use of these?? I don\'t know, just a thought.
I\'ve added a pic of the one fitted in my 8, the centre sticker was a protortype and I\'ve added a pic of the centre stickers that they now send with each item (as mentioned in their email below).
Don\'t forget the $/£ exchange rate helps UK buyers. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for postal/shipping costs as there may well be a discount for larger orders. :cheers .
The radio knob pricing is as follows:
Racer less 10% $27.00 to 25 pcs.
