      I have a new 2012 Jetta GLI and I'm trying to find a decent replacement shift knob for OEM that has more weight to it but does not look like a crap aftermatket add-on. I've looked around a little and can't find anything yet that has some good weight to it, will work with a VW's non-screw on knob, and still manage to look decent with a stock or aftermarket shift boot. Anyone out there have any good options/setups?

      Honestly, not really a fan of their knobs or their prices. There are a lot of companies out there who make knobs out of the same materials, with equal quality, at half the price. Heck, I know a company that will custom make a knob for significantly less than on off-the-shelf TWM, but they only do screw on/threaded knobs (and us I know TWM now sells an adapter).

      Having a knob custom made by WC Lathe Werks. Should have it sometime next week. The guy who runs it, Chris, is phenomenal to work/deal with.
