This seems a bit expensive for what it is, but it is definitely a worthwhile enhancement to the cabin. Very high quality, heavy chromed steel. As to fitting, you will need to tease off the leather gaiter from the back of the handle and the handle grip is just an interference fit on to the mechanical handbrake. Twisting it by a mm or two in opposite directions whilst pushing the grip from the back with your thumb will gradually shift it. The original plastic button was a very tight fit to unscrew and needed a mole wrench, using a strip of rubber not to mark it in case it needed to a be re-used. The new one went on much easier using some WD40 on the thread and only needing a wrench for the final half a turn (protected again with rubber strip). I sprayed some silicone spray on to the brake handle and inside the grip and it slid back on in seconds before teasing the gaiter back over the end of the handle.
