Can you imagine what it would be like to try to get your transmission to shift into the right gear without a shift knob? It'd be trial and error, a matter of fumbling with a bare gear lever and hoping you got the shift pattern right. That'd be a real problem in, say, bad weather, where you may need to get your Volkswagen into a lower gear. Luckily, that's not something you need to worry about -- most of the time, that is, until your shift knob wears out, blurring its shift pattern insert, or worse, breaks and comes off.
When that happens, there's little choice but to replace it. Luckily, there are plenty of options for sale online these days. Some are universal, made to fit many different VW models, while others are custom-fit, designed for a specific one. Any of them can be made of everything from basic plastic to more durable materials like brushed metal, chrome, and even an ultra-strong polymer like carbon fiber.
They come in all sorts of styles and designs, too, with many tailored to interests from racing to sports. Add a shift knob cover, though -- those made of no-frills vinyl, premium sheepskin or leather, and water-resistant neoprene are good examples -- and you can make that style and design your own. Weighted shift knobs, though, are next-level: they're designed to reduce both shift time and effort to boot.
