Knob product description:
Weighing in at a solid 440g ! The stock knob only weighs 100g.
This shift knob works to reduce the throw of your shifter by 28% over stock by shortening the height by 2 whole inches. Pair this with our Short Shift Transmission Adapter for a combined reduction of 48% over stock.
These shift knobs feature a precision CNC machined brass core for added weight as well as a delrin shell for durability, excellent appearance and ‘temperature management’. A heavier shift knob puts the weight towards the end of the shift lever. This increased momentum while shifting gives you a greater mechanical advantage, allowing for a much more positive feeling throw when rowing through the gears. The delrin shell with laser-etched Boomba logo prevents the surface of the shift knob from getting too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. These shift knobs make a great addition to your MK7 interior! They are held to your shifter with various set screws.

This shifter knob and short shift adapter made all the difference in the world on my 19' GLI. easy install, looks great and has a much cleaner shorter shift.
Easy peasy..... takes more time removing and replacing air box than the shifter installation...AWESOME shifting now! Thanks BoomBa
Best shift knob

This + Dieselgeek Shortshifter = Perfect Perfect Weight & Throw Distance How it should come from factory IMO
MK7 Golf R
Love this kit. I usually don't install the mods myself, I tend to just pay a professional to do it, but this was very easy. Night and day difference, love the feeling. Much shorter throws and it feels very sturdy.
Mk7 gti quick shift kit
This kit was super simple to install, and the shifts couldn't get any better. Love it!
Boomba quick shift kit for MK7
I drive a 2015 Sportwagen TDI and have been less than impressed with the notchy feeling of a couple of the gear shifts on this car. It made sense to me that a heavier knob would smooth things out, but I was worried that the reduced throw of the transmission adapter might magnify the problem I was feeling. Boy was I wrong! I absolutely love the way my car feels now. I actually get a little excited with anticipation each time I open the door. The feel is so sporty and positive now. Just the right amount of throw reduction. Much quicker through the gears. I recommend doing the shifter linkage adjustment at the same time and you will be as thrilled as I am.
Short throw shifter and weighted shift knob
Awesome product ! Easily installed in just a few minutes !! Greatly improved the feel of the shifting and the extra weight really helps engaging those gears
Quick Shift Kit
This is a pretty easy mod to put into your car. Completely changes the feel of shifting gears. It feels you've done a stage 1 upgrade to the shifter without having to change the control arm. Highly recommend.
