DCT Aftermarket Shift Knob

I was on Instagram and I came across this aftermarket shift knob and boot for the DCT transmission by 'Black Forest Industries'

https://blackforestindustries.com/pr...30294667231276

Anyone had any experience with this company before? Customer service and quality of their products?

I think it looks interesting. What do you guys think?

Meh. It's a mode switch. If you want a shift knob you should have bought the 6MT...

No direct experience but when I had my RS4 it was a popular option for those cars I noticed amongst the owner community.

This does look quite good I have to say but they don't match anything else in the M2 cockpit.

The perforated leather is a good match to the Audi RS steering wheels.

I do agree on it not matching anything else in the M2 cockpit. Looks nice, but out of place here.

Another down side is that it's not illuminated like the OEM shift knob.

Looks well made but it's not for me. I like that the DCT 'shifter' looks different to the manual shifter. This would revert it back to the manual look.
