Anyone? Will a Newer Keyless-Go shifter from 05+ work on a '03 SL55?

The shaft dimension is identical to other regular Mercedes shift shaft but there are 2 tiny holes as female connector.


The keyless go button is actually a toggle switch, there are 2 golden pins underneath the switch to plug into the shaft





To install the Keyless Go shifter is simple and easy, just make sure your donít twist around the shaft before the pins plug into the holes.



After the jaws grip the notch on the shaft, turn the knob at the bottom to hold the shifter

I ordered a shift knob from Ivan at DCT months ago and nothing...... You actually cannot the knob pictured in this thread bc Ivan says it's too difficult to make so what you get is a knob with partial carbon fiber. The underside of the knob that faces down toward the console beneath the chrome trim strip is leather. My order for that version was confirmed by Ivan, traded several emails with him after regarding ETA and now silence!!!!! Have been trying to contact him to no avail. Hasn't responded in over a month...... Got my steering wheel from him (took a LOT LONGER then he said it would....) and it's awesome but, this has turned into an extremely frustrating experience! Buyer beware.....

Sorry for the couple of year late question. I read the posts and had a question. If I have a 2006 sl65 that didn't have keyless go, can I convert it to keyless go?

Does the wiring exist in the stick even if I don't have the push-button start?

Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but I couldn't find an answer.
I don't have push-button start, just a normal shifter knob. Questions for those in the know:
-If i can pick up the shifter knob, is it worth it?
-Does the wiring exist in the stick or will I have to go and replace heaps of stuff (making it not worthwhile)?

the shifter comes all apart, you use your old cap, the carbon or wood piece doesnt have any thing to do with the center cap
