Default Auto gearknob upgrade?

Hi all.

I own a 2011 V60 D3 auto and love it apart from the gearknob - it's a plain leather blob and looks dated.

I've seen slightly newer V60s with a much more modern looking gearknob of black plastic/chrome and with a more streamlined shape.

Is it possible to fit one of these onto my car?

Cheers,

James

Don't know specifically but Volvo offer these for the 2011 car:

I have tried later years (2013/14) but they don't seem to list alternate gearknobs for those.

It can be done fairly easily I believe. I've seen a thread on it somewhere and the replacement gear selectors are available on Ebay for around 100. I'll see if I can find some links.
