[size="3"][b][i]Please let me know what your thoughts are on these guys,

Surfing through eBay on evening and I decided to look up custom focus parts,
Came across these beautiful replacement knobs for the air conditioning controls, the come in a range of grip colours red, black, or grey, I've personally purchased a set in black grips,

they look quality as it says their made with aluminium and also have photos of fitted at night and illuminate the same colour as the original item as the bulbs stay in the original casing, you just pull off the old knobs and replace with these, [/i][/b][/size]

[size="3"][b][i]Although I don't trust myself pulling them off my car so purchased a second hand control unit from the breakers, going to fit them to it and replace the whole control unit, as one piece, [/i][/b][/size]

[size="3"][b][i]Credit where it's due I think they're a fantastic upgrade to the rubbery dust catching controls that come as standard, also they match the stereo volume knob nicely and a steal at the price listed, Thoughts on these please[/i][/b][/size]

[size="3"][b][i]I can't believe I'm the fourth person on e-bay to buy a set,
ill post pictures and do a how to guide on these once received takes up to 14days to receive, can't wait[/i][/b][/size]

Yes they will look pretty good i think, i have seen then before on Ebay and almost clicked to buy them , no idea why i never lol.

Let me know how easy the other switches come off i tried pulling at them but seemed a little tight so i left them alone.
Lenny
cheers pree,
i plan to do a guide on fitting them.
Preee
i have spent the last hr searching for them from china suppliers haha , i'm guessing they are probably a few pence each to buy direct from china , when i saw them originally they were £16 but not sure if u=its the same guy selling them
Lenny
Im not selling them myself mate,
your probably rite about the wholesale business but it says their made of alloy and plastic, and if their quality and fit well im happy enough :)
johnH
from changing the leds in my heater panel, i can say the dials do pull off but do need a bit of strenght :lol:

i think they look pretty decent might buy a set...good find.
Preee
I have also seen on Fleabay while searching these that you can also get small Chrome surrounds as well , might be over kill though haha

Preee
Yes there are loads of cool stuff on there , can't seem to work out how to buy the darn stuff though haha. They had some interesting DRL mods on there which seem to go just above the Spot light.

*EDIT*

Lenny

Another site selling them

Seems same problem about buying though , its a Selling website call Taobao in china for the Chinese market , seems there are ways through selling Agents to purchase this stuff.
I'm still looking into it :D
Lenny

:blink: For some reason eBay have removed his listing, I’ve purchased from him and he has sent me tracking details and everything for my item but still eBay has suspected that the sale has taken place outside of the eBay umbrella
EBay mailed me saying :

thanks pree, always seems to be the hard to find items that leave you with your heart in your mouth, waiting for the postman to arrive like a puppy :lol: while you get e-mails from e-bay telling you that your item may not arrive, glad to have them now, very happy with them, ive uploaded a guide mate, check it out,

still waiting on a mountune badge four weeks now from the uk :lol: says he's sent it :rolleyes:
Preee
Usually the way Lenny , uk prts not arriving and China parts arriving as they should .

I'm still waiting for my Rear light badge , BTW i found the switches or what certainly look like them , i'm waiting on a reply from them to see if i can order just one set.

i have seen your guide m8 , spot on they look great which is why i want a set , the ones i have found are red/blue/black or yellow , but no silver so if they get back to me i will probably go with black,check the link see if they look the same as what you got ,i'm hoping they are.
