And if that's true - are the later (2006.5 MY) versions with the knurled metal outer also available with different suffix letter(s)?AudiA4B6US said:

What Model has the metal knobs & I'll check & post
I think the fact that it is saying LEFT and RIGHT means that they are not for RNS-E, but the lower spec Headunits.Dave.G6HNI said:Well I had to search under "navigation" to find the RNS-E...
And just below the release tool is listed...
8J0 059 528 - rotary knob - left
8J0 059 528A - rotary knob - right
but I'm not convinced they are definitely RNS-E knobs ???
I'm not certain, but I think RNS-E and BNS 5.0 use the same Knobs. I can check this tonight because I still have my old BNS 5.0 unit 8) . Â£18 for a knob though - they are having a laugh! I'm sure there was a guy on ebay selling a metal knob kit for about Â£12.PetrolDave said:Are you sure that's the RNS-E and not the BNS5.0?
What's the part number for item 1 in that picture?
It's not as far out as you might think though. The large knob on the RNS LOW is exactly the same diameter as the RNS-E one. It looked like it was going to fit at first, but the only difference is the length of the knob's splined shaft that grips onto the rotary mechanism. The RNS LOW mechanism is set further back, so requires a longer shaft. It could be made to fit the RNS-E if you dremeled back this part on the knob. I'll get some piccies up to explain this better! Thing is though, it's Â£18! AND it's made out of plastic NOT metal :lol:PetrolDave said:In Dave's edited post the replacement knobs are only shown against the RNS Low (i.e. the BNS 5.0) and not the RNS-E - so it's not surprising that they don't fit the RNS-E!
I would like to buy the metal knob kit from them too. How did you fit them? The current knobs are replaced or the metal rings have to be solder?PetrolDave said:I got a metal knob kit from www.tachoringe.de (I think!) along with lots of others nice metal interior trim pieces, but the metal knob trims from them are smooth and the 2006.5 cars have knurled knobs (like there was on the Symphony II fitted when I collected my RS4) - that's what I want.
Neither, they supply a tube of modelling adhesive and you (very carefully) apply a small drop of adhesive and slide the metal ring over the existing knob.CeldeSuS said:I would like to buy the metal knob kit from them too.
