Bought this at the same time as the leather handbrake lever gaiter and the chrome push button. All good quality items but with no fitting instructions, its only when you rummage around on MX-5 forums or read product reviews on this website that you find out how to fit them! The tricky bit is getting the old original sleeve off - 2 or 3 minutes with a hot hair dryer softened the original plastic handle sufficiently to enable it to be gradually eased off, and the new item was a good fit - took a bit of a heave to work it on over the metal handbrake lever itself, but was worth it as you don't want it to feel loose when using it, do you?! The length of the handle and aforementioned leather gaiter mean that the rear chrome collar on the handle disappears inside the gaiter and so you don't actually see it, however the front collar is obviously still visible so I'm happy with the result.
