    My bet would be its from a W140 or a C140. Does like nice but do confirm it is a genuine part.

    my gear knob is similar, but that one looks like its been botched together. If you take a look at the one on Nav's SEC its original and looks alot better IMHO. Mine is like that but without the badly added sticker.

    Am after a nice gear knob with a V8 logo on it, think it will go nicely on an E500 :)
    This is just the only one ive seen with one on.

    Apparently, its an OEM part from a G500 or G55 AMG.

    There is this site also, which other users may find useful:

    http://www.formymercedes.com

    They have the gear knob there for $99 which dont seem too bad and i think looks rather nice.
    Not original parts but still look of decent quality.
    A nice grey leather and burlwood one would match really nice in my car.

    They also offer the adapter needed to make it fit your car.

    The shift knob is a standard item from practically any model late-90s onwards as far as I can tell. The badge itself is under £3 from a stealership parts counter, if you can work out which one it is!

    Been trawling through the Russian EPC and not found it yet, but I'm closing in on it.

    EDIT: so far it looks like it's not from a G55 as they have an AMG badge.
