Tiptronic Shift Knob
« on: June 02, 2006, 01:58:45 AM »
Does anyone know of a source for Tiptronic shift knobs or is it possible to put a MT knob on a Tiptronic?

Thanks,

Jon

There's a group buy going on Passat world for leather Tip shift knobs for a great deal:

I've bought from Rus @ dubstop.com a couple times before and he's awesome.

I replaced my cracked wood tip knob with a manual knob (which I also bought from Rus) -- you just need to buy an adapter (SSP or Wal Tip) which is about $80-90 to make it work.  Because the button is gone with the manual knob, the adapter allows you to pull the shifter up to shift.  It's a little wierd at first but you quickly get used to it.

here's a pic of mine:

No problem I am just glad there is a replacement for the ugly OEM knobber.
