I love European cars of the German variety. I have for as long as I can remember. And within German cars, I've always been partial to Volkswagen and Audi - there's something oddly familiar about them.

möbius one was designed as a log of sorts, for me to record the changes I make to this, one of my dream cars, which I am lucky....

RS6 Shift Knob Upgrade

12 29 2011

0

One of the things I received this Christmas, was this RS6 shift knob to match the RS5 steering wheel that I installed last August. The shift knob is aluminum partially covered in perforated leather, which matches the steering wheel perfectly and feels equally amazing in the hand. A very nice upgrade to the smooth stock shifter in the S4, the installation process is a bit cumbersome, but very easy all things considered.

First, one must undo the shift boot at the edges with a soft edge tool like a credit card or similar. It is pressure fit in there so it comes out with relative ease. Then, one needs to pry off a metal clip that holds the boot wrapped around the shift knob. This metal ring is not to be re-used. Taking it off generally mangles it beyond re-use possibility. Then the stock knob is held on by a plastic ring that secures it in place. One must wedge four corners that secure the knob to the ring, which in turn secures it to the shifter before it can be pulled out and set aside.

Then, simply grab the new shift knob and slide it over the shifter. Make sure it clicks and then remove the pin that holds the shift knob button. Then use zip ties to secure the boot around the knob, in place of the metal ring previously discarded. Cut the excess tie off at the base and re-install the shift boot. I think the results speak for themselves.

Thanks to my wonderful girlfriend for such a thoughtful gift!

Merry Christmas to everyone!
