      Ordered that from tmtuning. They said it fits MK4... yeah right!

      It comes with a wierd plastic base... made for the Beetle I suppose. Anyway, it dosen't fit G/J4 at all. But that didn't stoped me. 2 days and 10$ later, I had the original Turbo S boot customised to have an elastic end just like the OEM boot.

      Now I get to enjoy my Beetle Turbo S shift knob/boot!

      I know, this post is kinda useless, but I would have like to find a post like that when I searched for this info two weeks ago.

      BTW, I didn't cut the shift rod but it sits about ½" lower then the stock shift knob. The feel and shape is much better the the OEM one too.

      I ordered it trough a local shop, VAG Motorsport, which have an account at tmt so I don't know the shipping price.
