    Thread: MK4 Automatic Shift Knob Adapter......Opinions Welcome

      Broke the shift knob on the wife's 03 GTI and refused to pay for a used replacement for $50-60 on EBAY. Saw the SPP tip mod but wanted a knob that threads on so I combined a little of their concept with my own. My adapter is threaded for a M10x1.5 shift knob since that is the most common one I found (fits all Honda knobs).

      Here is what I have so far, this is a first tryout and would love to hear suggestions since I can always make another one that looks better.

      Still deciding on a shift knob but you get the idea. Don't mind the mess, trying to track down an electrical problem so most of the interior is taken apart.

      If you are interested in one of these I can make them for less than the SPP tip mods. Just message me on here.

      Here is the semi finished project.

      Thinking about painting the VW black and polishing the rest or I could just leave it like it is. Thoughts?

      I made the knob from aluminum billet.

      Beautiful work! I would love to have one for my 02 GTI tiptronic.

      How did you work around the push button knob to get out of park?

      The post is nearly 4 years old, and that user hasn't been on the site in about 3 years, so I'm guessing not.
      If you need a knob for an auto shifter, check out Black Forest Industries. http://store.blackforestindustries.com/dsg.html
