Yes, that is the one I'm looking at. Very expensive. I want to make sure the cable is long enough before I bite the bullet.

I need to revise my measurement! I don't know what I thought I saw the first time, but I just re-measured and came up with 30 inches. Not the first time I've come up a couple inches short, but that's another story for another time.

I have just been looking at that cable in OZ and in my opinion that is not the type that was fitted to Elans, take a look at the window of the knob and it is not the same as mine ( which has a " convex" window) while the OZ one seems to be concave, it is also not the same symbol and as you appear to be looking for originality I do not believe it is correct.

Yes it`s like this one I bought for ?4.99 so I didn`t mind it not being exactly right. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201164647504? ... EBIDX%3AIT
