shift gate cover "plate"

Hi Steve,

That is indeed the part the dealer showed me - and ordered for my car. It is however too long ( at least a couple inches) for the shift gate opening it is intended to cover.
The original part in my Euro, is softer rubber (or rubber like) material that has a "Lip" all around. The lip slides underneath the opening - as opposed to the "pegs" part 146 has.
While the way it fastens may have changed with an upgraded part, size could not have- so I am still searching for the right part number.....
From your email I guess US version shiftgates vary in size from Euro's though it does not make any sense.
