I have been thinking of this. I know an Audi S-line knob fits so it's probably a standard fitment. You will find that the knob and gaitor cover come together but you will need to decouple as the base won't fit.

Fairly sure it would but you'll probably not know till you get it. You may want to see if you can ge cheaper from dealer part dept. Quite like that one.

That will fit fine, but you'll need too swap the gaiter over.

I have the audi s-line one in my vRS, details on my blog...
