      Not only do our BFI Heavyweight Shift Knobs look great inside your car, but it also adds a bit of function and performance as well. With its solid construction and added heft, shifting becomes smoother and faster. Utilizing a modular threaded insert design this shift knob is compatible with nearly any VW or Audi application.

      Our manual transmission BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs come in several different styles:


      All GS1 and GS2 manual transmission BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs include:
      • One Heavy Weight Shift Knob
      • One BFI crest logo coin
      • One adapter for vehicles without threaded selector shaft
      • Three set screws
      • Allen key for set screws
























      Just because your car doesn't have a third pedal, doesn't mean you should be stuck with some goofy shifter. Until now options were limited to OEM and other less than ideal choices for those with DSG / S-tronic / Automatic cars. Fortunately with our proprietary design you can ditch your stock shifter and switch to a more traditional style knob.

      To disengage the lockout you simply lift up, rather than pressing the trigger (works with both side and front triggers!). It is that simple. Installation is straightforward and takes only a short while.

      Our DSG / S-tronic / Automatic shift knobs are currently compatible will all DSG, S-tronic and Tiptronic models in MK4 through MK7 VW and B5 through B8 Audi models. However, early automatic models that do not use a shift boot (ex MK4 or B5) may not look aesthetically pleasing because the entire adapter is exposed. Later models with a shift boot will cover the lower part of the adapter that holds the set screws and trigger mechanism.

      All DSG / S-tronic / Automatic shift knobs are on pre-order through Sept. 11th at a reduced cost of $149.99! Pre-orders will begin shipping on, or around, Sept 21st.

      Our DSG / Automatic BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs come in several different styles:


      All DSG / Automatic BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knobs include:
      • One Heavy Weight Shift Knob
      • One BFI crest logo coin
      • One adapter for DSG / Auto selector shafts
      • Four set screws
      • Allen key for set screws






      *MORE DSG / AUTOMATIC IMAGES COMING SOON!*







      After you upgrade your shift knob, the first thing you notice is just how much the factory shift boot is lacking. We now offer specific fitment shift boot options in various materials to compliment your new shift knob. Don’t underestimate just how much such a simple piece can dramatically improve the feel of your interior. These boots are CNC cut for a precise and consistent fit. All boots are produced in the USA by JPM Coachworks using only the best materials available. Choose from the selected optional thread colors [black, red, blue or silver] to give your interior a unique, or OEM plus look.

      Our BFI Shift Boots are currently offered for these applications:


      All BFI Shift Boots include:
      • One Leather or Alcantara shift boot with your choice of thread color

      I am confused as to why anyone would want, or need, a "heavy weight shift knob" on a DSG automatic car.

      Here's a video of how the new shift knob works for the DSG/automatic!
      Make sure you turn the volume up.

      Can you please explain the "faster" part? I'm interested in how you've managed to break Newton's second law.

      The DSG/automatic knob is the same heavy weight shift knob as is used in manual applications, but with added hardware to make it compatible with the DSG/automatic shifter. The product has always been called the "BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knob." While it doesn't improve shifting perfomance with the DSG/automatic, it does make a noticeable improvement on manual transmission vehicles.
