    my new illuminated gearknob has arrived and before i go try to fit it i was wondering if any1 has fitted 1? i assume i get the power from the cig lighter? and the wires going to that easily located and is it simply just scotch lock the wires from my gear knob to the wires from the cig lighter? sorry for being a goon! haha!....this is how i did it in my old 206 so im guessing its the same? cheers

    An illuminated gear knob.....!!!!!! Hahahahaha.

    Yeah you could wire it into the lighter. But you could make it more interesting by wiring it into your brake lights.........lol.

    You certainly do have some "interesting" thoughts on modifications........!!

    Good for a laugh though.
