      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.

      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

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

      We are down to our final few BFI Heavy Weight Limited Edition GS2 Shift Knobs!
      This latest offering takes the GS2 series to the next level with the addition of blue perforated Alcantara.
      This knob feels as supple as it looks in your hand, but with only 50 ever being produced you may never get the chance to hold one of these!
      Each limited edition knob is shipped with a signed and numbered card of authenticity outlining our commitment to quality and innovation.

      Thank you for your patience during the production process! I can promise you that it's well worth the wait.

      Be sure to report back on how you like everything!

      Put the shift knob and boot on today. Not really excited about how the red turned out. Its more of a burgandy/brick red. Not as bright as it looks in the pictures.

      Sorry to hear that the color was a bit different than what you expected.

      In the pictures we have published on our site, we have tried to represent the color as accurately as possible. In pictures that we have seen from customers, the color can vary a bit depending on lighting and other various factors.

      The Magma is an OEM leather color, so if anyone has any doubts as to what it looks like in person, take a look at any Audi interior with Magma leather.

      The fit and finish of this product is amazing! The color just wasn't as vibrant as I thought it would be. I love this shifter though.

      You requested it and we listened. Now available for all DSG and Tiptronic / Automatic VW and Audi vehicles, the shift knob that started it all. Our GS1 full billet shift knob is the perfect compliment to any interior, ridding you of the clunky factory airplane lever that feels so cheap in your hands. Simply lift up to select your gear, no buttons to detract from the elegant and sophisticated styling of your interior. Our initial run is in stock and ready to ship now, but supplies are limited. Find out what you’ve been missing and get better shifting you can feel.

      The first run is limited, so if you miss the initial run there will be a slightly longer lead time.
