Default Re: Anyone with an automatic gearbox - advice needed please

I just found this thread while looking for the shifter cover (KZ 0 701 713 605) somewhere online to purchase. Since that endeavor was unsuccessful, I called my Local VW dealership. The parts department informed me that this is a special order part which will cost me $27.86 + tax. I chuckled, hung up the phone, and went down the street to the 99 cent store where I purchased a plastic three ring binder which has enough material to make more than 10 of these covers. All you have to do is some precision cutting with an exact o knife. The original material measures about .5mm and what I purchased is about .4mm.

I'd rather make my own than pay Volkswagen an insanely high price for a little piece of stamp-cut plastic. I hope this helps someone else out there.

This shifter cover (shown in Blue) was made from the plastic three ring notebook from the 99 cent store and took 10 minutes to cut with a hobby knife saving me about $29 USD
