Yup it does. I think they are all the same unless you get the optional MOMO.

BTW on this top who thinks one would fit in an AU?

mate thats exactly why im asking
im gonna get one to put in my AU
pulled my AU one apart today to see what any difficulties could be...
the shaft the knob slides onto is only plastic so if it didnt fit you could modify it a bit.

main problem i see is the push button mechanism (the AU is on the side, BA is on the front/back whatever you wanna call it - facing the dash)...im concidering working it so the sprung load shaft thing (inside) is always in the pushed in position, hence button is not neccessary - the actual knob still seems to lock into each gear quite nicely even when the button is completely compressed.

p.s. if anyone can think of another reason why it wouldnt work please raise your hand...

Yeah well i was thinking of actually getting a new Momo steering wheel off an AU1(red one) and getting a Red BA momo gear lever. But i reckon it would be too much work personally and that an AU fairmont ghia one would be a better option (leather and chrome button)

Thats my 5 cents.

Also Falkeen,

have you though about Chrome door handles like the T series and Fairmont Ghia?

i dont see what the problem could be with changing the gear knobs around. I was thinking about aquiring one for my XF auto. I have already replaced my XF tacky-plastic-with-orange-button gear knob with a nicer EB grey-rubber-with-black-button gear knob. As far as i know most auto gear knobs use a universal thread so you could probably put whatever you wanted on it. I was thinking about putting a VT/VX Commodore or current model Magna gear knob on my XF (you know, the ones with the button on top, not on the side) but then when i saw the BA gear knob, i decided to wait til i could get one of them.

mate i was a little worried about the thread myself but today when i pulled my AU one apart i was surprised to see no thread at all!! it just slides onto a shaft then has a screw that screws into the side of it to stop it from sliding around

Anyone have a price and/or part number for the chrome interior handles?

Been thinking about it myself lately. They would look good with the black doors of the AU XR6.
