You are right, the default is Dutch, not German. Oops.
In any case, that shifter does look like a very nice piece, although I agree that $280-ish is a bit steep.
Someone should try to get a bulk discount on that one... perhaps someone that speaks Dutch.
ordered a few nights ago-they should arrive in a week and i'll let you all know. FYI the link is for the V6 Turbo and we have the 4, different part number, but SAME PART. I freaked out when I found out I ordered the "wrong one" but the rep claims the 170050 and 170040 are the same..SMH
