any reason why a shift knob and boot from a B8 S4 wouldnt fit a 2011 Q7?
Thanks,

Bri

Yes, the plastic base that snaps down in the shifter compartment is a little wider the the B8 platforms. The simple fix is to swap the old and new bases out by just prying off and reattaching the staples in each. Also FYI, An A6 knob and boot is a plug-n-play fit for the Q7.

Ray,

Thanks for the insight! I think I might give it a try after all

No problem. Good luck and post pics if you can. I'd love to see the final product.
