    gearknob.
    Scoured the whole of the internet for this. FInally found a Russian car parts website, and used Google translate to contact seller, and job done.

    Cannot wait to have this fitted. Just need to sort out 2 new front tyres (Michelin all the way), and a few other bits and bobs, and I can then rest happily knowing my little baby is perfect

    Wow, what website did you find it on???!!? I've been looking for it for ages! arggghhh, so jealous ! Could you check one thing for me? Is it real piece of wood or is it plastic? You might be able to tell if colour is slightly different to the center console's colour (which in 2007 with Radar is real wood). If you take a closer look saturation on the center piece is slightly lower than on side wood pieces. Wood pattern is sharper on the real thing as well

    Hi @timkk
    I found it on drom.ru website. I searched everywhere initially. Looked at all US stock then Europe and then Japan. Finally searched on Google via the actual part number and I found this Russian website.

    I had to use Google translate to obviously figure out what was going on as my Russian is a little rusty. Anyway contacted this guy and I was initially very dubious. However turns out guy is really nice. He has the facelift KB2 and is a massive Honda Legend fan. He sells lots of Honda parts. Sent me out this part via DHL. Took over a week and a half but finally got it.

    He also sent a little gift for my wife! A handmade flower to put in her hair!

    I will check if its real wood or not. I don't think it is but will confirm. It honestly looks amazing in real life. A thing of sheer beauty (if my wife reads this then I will leave this part for you in my will timkk).

    I'm not crazy, used to be but been much better since I escaped from my straightjacket. :Nuts:

    I'm just obsessed at getting my car perfect and thought I was there until you just showed me that link for the centre console:hairout:

    I paid about 50 quid for the part. Won't say how much shipping was but now I understand why it's so hard to get things to and from Russia!

    Part number is 08U92SJA610.
