I'd have been happy with a nice stitched one to match the seats like the one I have now. Talk about penny pinching!

Me too, I think the crystal one looks cheap and much prefer my plain black plastic one but a stitched version should be standard in a "premium car". I'm surprised some enterprising company hasn't stitched up a nice leather cover, I would buy one.

Alcantara ones are available on AliExpress....

On the topic of AAOS 2.11 my B4 is steadfastly refusing to acknowledge its existence! I assume Volvo are releasing in waves so hopefully it won't be too soon.

That stitching doesn't match anything in the car and looks cheap.

I'd take the Hand Made Crystal Glass shifter anyday. Feels nice too and lights up like a little chandelier.
Having said that I'd swap it for a big engine with no Hybrid rubbish and AWD!
