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 kit 100% changes how the car drives and feels. Worth every penny and a easy install anyone can do.
Totally different feel than stock....A difference maker!!!
The easiest install of a short shifter and can't believe how much shorter the shift is. Then added with the shift knob is crazy short throws. This was best mod so far for the 6MT. Craftmenship is on point.
Easy to install and game changing. I wasn't sure if I should bother with the knob. I went for it and it feels so much better than OEM. Don't just get the knob or the adaptor. Get both!!
Love the product. Install was a breeze. Gives a whole new sturdy feel to shifting. Completely worth it.
This short shift kit is a fantastic, easy, low cost mod for your manual GTI! I'm pretty new to car mods and fun cars in general. I love my 2015 GTI that I got a few months ago, but this short shift kit has made it feel like a totally new car. It feels incredible! Much more precise, easy, fast shifts. It was also a breeze to install. Highly recommended. I do have one question: have you guys had any cases of the bolts on the shift adapter plate loosening? I'm wondering if I should put loctite on them to be safe?
Simple installation and amazing transformation of the shifting experience! This mod is the best bang for the buck I've done on any vehicle. As previous review says, shift kit with stock knob was big improvement and adding the Boomba knob is icing on the cake! This setup works as advertised.
Just installed this kit and love it. First installed the adaptor and went for a drive, and man you could notice how the shift throws have been reduced even with the stock knob, and just the feeling of shifting is better. the knob looks great, nice and heavy too, its the cherry on top. Install was simple as well
