It’s a weighted shift rod!

Also known as a weighted selector shaft. It’s a stock part of the shifter linkage on the MK3 Golf and Jetta made between ‘93 and ‘99. It doesn’t look very German, but it gets the job done. It basically adds a little extra inertia to the push of the shift making the shift feel much smoother.

Apparently it works so well that people with the Mk2 Golf and Jetta are retrofitting their non-weighted shifter rods with these. We haven’t actually done one ourselves but we’ve heard it’s a clean swap, so long as the rest of the linkage is still stock.
