Manual Gear Knob Insert

Does anyone know where you can buy a cap insert for the SLK R170 manual gear knob? The car would have originally had the chrome Final Edition cap but it's missing and I doubt I'll find one of these. However, the black 6 speed / reverse cap would be fine in the meantime.

No, although I've seen those in previous threads on the forum. The car only has 32,000 km and the interior is immaculate as is the gear stick, leather boot etc.

It's just the cap at the top which is missing.

Those are nice but look like they're more suited for the automatic shift.

The round cap of the R171 might fit

I made one using bakeable modeling clay. If you're interested let me know and I'll email some instruction. It was easy. Takes a couple of hours with finish sanding.

Thanks for the suggestion but last month I was hunting under the front driver seat for a dropped screw and found a disc like object wedged between seat and floor. I managed to pull it out and lo and behold it was the missing Special Edition engraved gear stick cap. It's now back in place.

Thanks again though.
