... on this gear knob on ebay - looks quite nice. Or is it a con or fake or just crap?

you will most likely get a knob exactly as the picture shows, it wont fit if you have lift up reverse and it is only a universal one not specific to the alfa so will be held in place by grub screws :thumbs:

the aftermarket ones always fit properly as they come with a rande of different size inserts to fit different size shafts and are generaly held in place by 3 grub screws (sometimes less) and are a good secure fit, the only problem is the collar on a lift up reverse alfa rarely fits inside the aftermarket knobs, i had that problem on mine (lift up reverse) so will be replacing mine at some stage when money allows, but for now it does the job

Agreed, looks pretty ropey TBH.

Far better off with one from the likes of Alfisti.net that you know is going to fit. Even the original Alfa 6 speed leather knob may be worth a look, but hey, what's wrong with the existing one anyways? :confused:
