    Looking to replace my Storm Motorwerks gearknob and handbrake lever with an OEM setup.

    it seems a new replacement leather gear knob comes with the embelem as a seperate insert? is this correct for the illuminated gearknob too?

    A new gearknob comes with the insert regardless if illuminated or not.
    Its just that you can buy the emblem seperate if yours is faded.

    I can tell you you’ll regret removing the storm knob in terms of shift feel. It made an unbelievable amount of difference to mine. It’s so much more positive and smooth with it fitted.

    As far as I know the illuminated knob cannot have the gearshift emblem replaced separately.

    I think it’s a great ‘period’ modification personally.

    This
    this is true I guess it will definitely be going back to the mid 90’s with the oem gearknob and handbrake!

    I just have a desire to go back to full OEM now :rolleyes:

    Have you build sheet checked this? I know there was a small period of Non-Evo facelifts but always thought it was just visual.

    No, fitted a 420G myself - not from factory.

    Curb your enthusiasm, gents!

    Shouldn't be any non-evo facelifts as the facelift didn't happen until well after the evo was out.

    Pre-facelift evo owner here!

    I expect quite a few late 3.0s got evo style clear indicators at the dealers before the evos were officially on sale.

    I actually fitted facelift wings, side repeaters, nosecone and kidney grills to my 3.0 as I was never a fan of the pre-facelift look especially the side repeaters I know this previously caused some controversy especially with @MParallel :D

    That is incorrect. No non-evo i.e. 3.0 was ever a facelift.

    So it's the other way around. Every facelift is an Evo, but not all Evo's are a facelift.

    Facelift came for the 97MY (9/96). The 3.0's were long out of production then.

    So also, no 3.0 ever had a 6-speed from factory.
