Looks Great / Fit sucks until you add a little love to the product
This product looks great and adds just the right amount of finish to the interior without going overboard.
As for fit, until you add your own double sided tape or in my case double sided velcro, it is lousy.
So here is what worked for me.
Took a little "BLACK" velcro, 4 pieces, about an inch in length.
Turned the new chrome bezel upside down and placed on a soft surface so not to scratch.
You will see the useless double sided tape that came with the unit along the inside edges.
Trim the velcro to about the same width as the useless tape, peel the protective cover one side only, exposing and sticky stuff and stick in the corners of the bezel.
Pop the original plastic bezel and make sure to give it a wipe with a little alcohol swab. Not the one that comes in the box, chances are it will be dry when you open it, mine was.
Once clean, go back to the new bezel you just bought, peel the protective cover from the second side of the velcro,.
Push the original plastic bezel tightly into the new fancy great looking bezel, now it is all one piece.
As a single piece pop it back into its original position over the shifter and it is all set.
The velcro does not make it to thick and at the same time it is a stronger fit PLUS there ends up being a little soft cushion so no hard plastic to plastic vibration or noise.
NOTE: THE ORIGINAL BEZEL ONLY FITS INTO ITS ORIGINAL POSITION ONE WAY. MAKE SURE WHEN YOU PUSH THE ORIGINAL BEZEL INTO THE NEW ONE, THE DIRECTION IS RIGHT
