I thought you were talking about the ENTIRE black part. Yes, you have to cut the top part (just like pictures show), in order to mount the acrylic top like factory. I did this over 2 years ago, so don't remember exactly what I did, but I secured it somehow (probably glued it). For the acrylic top, I reused the adhesive pattern since it came out intact (that I remember
). And the LED being closer to the acrylic top made zero difference in my car; looks the same, and light is perfectly uniform.

Two things. Leather is indeed slightly different, but with the 'ring' separating boot from knob, you CANNOT tell the difference sitting in the car... unless you're really looking for a difference, AND under the right lighting. Even for my super anal standards, it's a non issue at all.
But if you want to sell it, put it on the classifieds and it'd sell in no time. Good luck either way.
