What is the yellow light on the left side of the shifter? Gear indicator or just a reflection??? It looks like the shifter on mine 2004 300m. Too outdated. Hope it is a joke.....

Ugly. I still cannot grasp how people cannot figure out the shifter on the '14-'15, it is insanely easy and very natural feeling after a day or two.

Still with foot operated parking brake.
The current one looks nicer, that one looks okay. The only issue with the current one is that the positions don't have a firm enough feedback and it makes it easy to be in R instead or N etc..

Re: New WK2 shifter handle for 2016 (pic)...

Ugggggly. Outdated. Hate the leather boot. While the 2014 is different as it returns to center versus set positions, it still is a lot better than this baggie thing............ TOTALLY NOT MODERN AT ALL.

Re: New WK2 shifter handle for 2016 (pic)...

I wonder if this is backwards compatible with the '14/'15 models. I'll be in the minority, and say that I would love to replace mine with this.

Wha??!! No way, the current one is way better than the image we are getting of this 2016 shifter.

It looks like they gave up on the current one and raided the local wrecker and found that thing...... I'll happily keep mine thanks!

And I agree, takes all of 5 minutes to master and it feels natural, different, but all good.

Re: New WK2 shifter handle for 2016 (pic)...

Just because it "looks" like a gated, classic design, it is not. It is still "linear" in operation and I echo the comments that in fact it looks dated by about 5 years.

I like the carbon fibre dash panels. A nice change from the wood.
