My Peugeot 406 had a leather gear knob, but the bulb on top had a plastic disc, thus I suppose this is the reason the one in my V40 made no impression (good or bad) to me. Of course leather offers a special feeling, if I have to judge from the steering wheel, and I would prefer that. Anyway, illumination is something new and unique.hasofy said:Thanks guys!
Jens-Peter, nice to know you also share my opinion that the car is suitable for a small family, based on your experience.
When it comes to the gear knob, I actually don't mind the cold feeling of an aluminium one. It could also be mostly covered with leather, with aluminium details only, to minimise this feeling. I would prefer that to the plasticky feeling of the one in the V40. I think it would also look better.
