So what is out there for DSG shift knobs? I currently have a BFI one, and not really too big a fan of it. The base of it is too skinny I guess? It just makes it look off.

Just not a fan of the thin base between the boot and the knob.

I'm a fan of golfball types (muh heritage), but if not golfball, it would have to be perforated leather.
Pretty much all the companies that make knobs for shifting have the adapters for the Automatics now, I like the way the stock one looks best on a automatic actually. Lol


The tiny shaft on BFI has always been my main complaint with thier design when incorporating to the shift boot, but honesty it don’t look bad to me on yours yeah it’s bunched up some and if you could figure a way to incorporate a raceseng or likewise boot ring it would be perfect.

Look at Sportshifters.com from the Netherlands. The base maybe smaller than you like, but the work he does is very quality. I got the kit for my 6sp.
The base is much bigger than the bfi and designed for a smooth transition of the boot unlike the bfi... sucks cause the golf ball design other than the shaft it’s really a great execution

Do you have a BFI in your absurd collection? Any chance a BFI upper threads onto the SportShifter lower? I'm assuming this won't be possible, but would allow the golf ball upper on a normal size shaft.

Nope, never got past the bfi shape to even entertain them.

And doubtful for sure everyone mills the threads to their own spec.

Is that piston style knob from euro impulse?
No, coolerworx.

It’s the one that comes with it, wouldn’t work with stock setup as it’s not threaded it’s got a counter sunk hole at the top that you bolt it down to the shaft.
