Multipla Gear Stick & Steering Wheel

Okay, I'll kick this section of the forum off with a whinge about the Multipla's gear stick & the steering wheel. I have to say I'm well impressed with the Multipla, but the above items are typically cheap nasty Fiat parts. I know that wheel alternatives are in the Brio catalogue, but they are a little expensive, but there are no gearsticks. Anyone know where a decent replacement can be found ?

Also, anyone know where you can get the 'Wait until you see it from the front' stickers ?

The gear stick is a load of cack.
I've lost count of the number of times that I've gone to put it in reverse only for the knob, gaitor and plastic surround to come away from the dashboard leaving a very pointy piece of steel in its wake.

As has been said, it's cheap and nasty and why is some of the dashboard covered in a rubber type coating that lasts exactly a year before it peels off?

Stevie: I used to have the gearstick come out going into reverse, but her indoors pointed out that I was pulling it backwards, which isn't neccessary - hasn't hapened since.
