    Finally it's installed.. And it's beautiful! Much better 'in hand' feel than the stock one due to its shape and size, and yet it is lighter than the stock one... It is made in Italy and comes with a nice combination of brushed aluminium, leather and plastic.

    Now I need the 'bright metal' interior panels to match the colour (part number 08Z03-TL0-610A), hope HH can offer a good deal having in mind the number of items I intend to order from them...

    I have never seen that gear shifter in real life before,I can get use to it. However the 8th Generation stock shifter is really stubby and accurate for my driving style. I treat the gear shift like a egg shell :Wink:

    This being top heavy like Jordan silicone rack it will be handfull :Whistle:.. Just Joking

    What I do like is there is no silver ring at the bottom of the gear shifter like the stock one which over time wears revealing a black undercoat. I will tell them about this on my first service.

    Trust me, this one is the real deal... It's also pricey, my cost was 100 EUR for the shifter + installation. But it's worth every penny, great stuff... It totally opens up the interior!

    This is the best ever combo (bright metal panels on the dash, this fantastic steering wheel and bright metal shifter)

    Bright metal.

    Then you add aluminuium pedals, speaker rings, door step garnish and elegance carpets, and you are ready to fight any Beemer on the road :lol:

    i like the gear knob... thats one OEM product i don't like from my Accord. i checked with HH during the meet and it was a bit pricey and i didnt really want the cheap eBay one so i guess im stuck with the original one for now...

    btw original OEM knob replacement is 3x more expensive than the one featured in accessories brochure..

    Guys, that's an awesome steering wheel and reminds me of the BMW M sport wheel.

    Is this available for as an upgrade and where did you get the steering wheel from? Or is it standard on all EX GT

    I take it will fit an EX model

    Perhaps HH can sweep in and cash in all the interest in this steering with a fantastic AOC member price!
