My Rieger illuminated gear knob arrived this morning.

Ordered on the Thursday 16th Feb from riegeretc.com and it arrived today (21st Feb) all the way from America. Cost ?66.65 ($113). Best of all though, it was marked as a GIFT on the customs form so didn't have to pay the postman any VAT.

NB. If any one from the Inland Revenue is reading this then it didn't arrive marked as a gift and I did pay the VAT!!

Good luck mate. I ran a GB for these before xmas. The discount i was able to give members was only ?10 and with all the different combinations its a nightmare. Plus i got hit for ?92 thru customs, personally i'd stick to buying them individually.

aaah. Good point about the customs thing. Will probably not bother then. I'll see what Rieger say though when i get my reply.

Thanks Simon for the clicky.

Thanks for sorting the piccy's. I've no idea why I can't do it.

The only thing I would say about this though is that the throw seems to be a little longer and the knob sits a little higher than the original. I'm going to cut about a centimetre or so off the stick.

that looks so wicked!

the reason why your pictures arent showing is becuase you need to do the following...

I have managed to sort this out now. I use an AppleMac with Safari. I
can post pictures and links properly on this forum if I use Firefox.

Thanks for the help though.[Y]
