    If you want a fully sequential gearbox then you will have to contact someone like SQS or Quaife, but I hope you have deep pockets as they are mega money.

    The other option is the SQS sequential shifter which retains the standard gearbox. The sequntial part of this option is in the shifter as it just converts the squential shift motion into H-pattern by using a motor and a cam/wheel with slots cut into it. This still isn't cheap at approx. £1400 for the shifter alone

    have one of those already good bit of kit but I have seen an American s3 8l on YouTube using a stick like in a rally box just forwards for up gears back to drop down no side movement at all?

    so it's called a sequential box? Is this just forwards for up gear and back for down gears no side movement?

    Probably costs 3-4 the value off your s3. Then there's the regular rebuilds. Pointless unless you're racing and even then, only needed if you're chasing a few secs.

    The SQS shifter is probably the closest...

    Gear changes?

    Both EUtuning and Oakleydesign do these shifters for stock VAG gearboxes and Porsches using electro magnets in the bottom of the shift tower
