    Love the sun strip!!! I am amazed that if you don't get the dog ring you get the basic gear knob off a Custom!! No aluminium or carbon.

    Super lovely car though and I wish you many happy miles  :)

    Thanks, I really like the sun strip too. Phil at Lipscomb had it made.

    I'm with you on the gear nob! Maybe I'll fine something more suitable.

    I looked at loads of options for gear stick upgrades including custom made ones from America. I settled for the all aluminium Abarth Scorpion one and it is fantastic. Nice weight, looks good in the car and feels much nicer. I really didn't like the feel of the stitching on the leather one. I was surprised just how much of a difference it made.

    I have to ask but is the number plate descriptive or is there some other hidden meaning  ;D

    They probably went with the leather because it was lighter that the aluminium! I shall have a look around but I like your idea of the aluminium Abarth Scorpion one.

    Ha! It's more of a description of behavior than an aesthetic comparison!!

    Magneti Marelli make a nice carbon top with complimentary suede gear boot if you fancy something different.

    I like that, I saw it on the TMC website but the picture is not good enough to see the detail.

    More carbon required!
