What does everyone think of parts4vws.com. I just ordered the 2.0 badge for 12 bucks and after it was shipped got an email stating that shipping was $6.00!!!!! So, $18 for the 2.0 badge. Seems a lil high. I also like the golf euro sport shift knob and boot. But, $100 and then what, $25 for shipping?? A lot of money, but I really do like that shift knob and hopefully will like my 2.0 badge.
Does anyone have the knob and boot and have any good pics? How do you like it?? Does it feel like the one found on the WE?

Quick jump into flamesuit... Virtual World is probably one of the most respected outfits on the web. I have always had excellent service from the and always try to buy from them even if I can get a little better deal elsewhere. I believe that your 6.00 shipping was probably there minimum rate, UPS ain't cheap like USPS but you get what you pay for. BTW I had free shipping on cupkit because it was on a special, thats a lot more than a $6.00 savings too, now thats service...

I think it stated on the website that the shipping charge was @ the lowest UPS rate and that sounds about right. I just wish the actual total was listed before the order was processed. I would have added a few more things on to it. Never realized how expensive UPS was.

Gotta say, Mike and Kristen Potter are awsome. They own and opperate Virtual World http://www.Parts4VWs.com
Phishy is right. The potters are by far some of the most well respected business people serving VW Enthusiasts.
I'd bet your shift knob costs about the same to ship. Of course you could have purchase BOTH parts and had them shipped in ONE BOX for the same price too.

if you can buy from the potters then get it from them. I've ordered numerous things and have always had prompt shipping and excellent service. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Ya, you'll probably get alot of flack. I for one will just chime in that I too have had nothing but EXCELLENT service from them. Maybe the M&M's will soften the blow a little bit.

Re: Parts4VWs.com & Golf Euro Sport shift knob/boot (DaForceFedGTI)

I ordered my neuspeed short shifter and intake from them. Excellent service..!! And I ordered the 4 motion rear valence from them, but it doesn't fits with my remus spec exhaust..!! I returned the goods to them w/o any problem at all..!!!
I am thinking to order the neuspeed rear sway bar from them later on..!!
They have an excellent service..!!! http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Hmm don't know about that, because I've always called them to order. But it does give an estimate of shipping charges on the website for each item.
For instance here is the link to your Golf Euro Shift Knob: http://www.parts4vws.com/catalog/product_detail.asp?PartNumber=1J0711113CD
Shipping on that item is FREE. But, if you look in the lower right hand corner and put your cursor over over the brown A, you will notice that the shipping charge (if they didn't pay it for you on this item) would be $5-$7.
But like I said, on that shift knob you want, shipping is *free*
Gotta love the potters

I got my brake pads from the Potters and I loved how, when i spoke to her on the phone, she said she'd ship them out after we get off the phone! now that's prompt. and the M&M treat was the best part.

http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif highly respected people... from me and the vortex crowd.
when i ordered my set of HR springs, it failed to arrive. it could have been a mistake from the postal dept, or it could've been lost along the way. needless to say, potterman sent another one to and it arrived. i even called them back to confirm the delivery.. they were happy; and so was I.
the missing HR springs has yet to arrive.... it's.. probably somewhere in Taiwan
LOL

The Neuspeed short shifter was a free shipping item too.
I have ordered TT pedals and K&N filter thru them too.
Dont diss the Potters in the Vortex, It would be like sending a hoax anthrax letter to the White House.

Thx!
Three more for your delight!



The Euro knob really complements this dash trim. I know VWoA has an Aluminum knob in is catalog, but I love the combination of leather and metal in this Euro knob/boot.

Just so you know, there is a group buy for the European Golf shift knob & boot. If you hurry, you can still make it. Only cost around $85 shipped to your door. Check out: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=157013&page=1

Just to give respect where due, I have heard nothing but GOOD things about Parts4VWs.com. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
