There are a number of interior accessories that are used in your Volkswagen. These are important to maintain so you can comfortably drive your vehicle. The shifter is what will normally be used to change gears in your vehicle. The shift knob is specifically the surface that you hold onto when you're switching gears, so the knob itself should be comfortable to hold. If it becomes worn out, you might want to get a replacement. Frequency of use can cause the surface to crack or wear down as time passes. The shift knob is also something that can be personalized to change the look of your Volkswagne. There are also custom shift knobs on the market to change the look of your car. You can find a great selection of OEM shift knobs on our site.
