    Gear knob change from stock ?

    Dear All,

    Did any one who trying to change the 2006 PASSAT 2.0TFSI gear lever from the stock 'T' style to DSG style or any other aftermarket style?

    I know it is so complicated as the mechanism may totally in different inside but the DSG style gear knob is really cool...

    I'm actually located in Hong Kong and I asked the DCH before, they quoted for the parts about HK$ 5,100 !!! plus labour cost $1xxx but dat was only for the Golf models n they don't sure if it will fit for my Passat.....

    Thanks in advance for your comments.

    Dear Terence,

    Thx for your suggestion . I actually got the lovely web from my friend : ' TM TUNING' and contact them for help.... since they have the OEM MK5 DSG Shiftknob for parts but they reply as follows:

    " Hello Tim,
    I dont believe that it will fit the Passat, I remember having a previous customer that attempted to install it and it did not work.

    There is no other knobs that I know of that will work besides other then the same OEM year and type shift knobs. The only other knobs I know of that work from the OEM selection are the wood types. "

    Dat means I have to wait if there's any OEM R36 DSG shiftknob is available at least in Germany.

    Yeap, I think the one from R36 would look nicer too.
