    I think you need the part no. 8N0-711-051A

    the 8N0-711-051 is 5 speed
    the 8N0-711-051A is for the 6 speed.

    I know someone who had a short shift and they said your gearchanges have to be precise or you'll get the jerkyness of kangaroo petrol

    TT short shifter

    anyone have any update re this? I've collected the 051A part - which has been updated to 8NO 711 046. Whether this is right or wrong, it won't fit onto an S3 (BAM engine code). In simple terms, the part collected is (from the front) a "right hand" facing piece - the S3 needs a left hand orientation.

    Thankfully the part didn't cost the earth, however, if anyone has any news/confirmation of whether the piece works, a pic maybe and the related part number, I'd be most grateful.

    Otherwise, I may have a golf part up for grabs!

    Thanks


    Jonny

    I don't think this works with the 6 speed boxes only the 5 speed ones. The 6 speed ones already have a shorter throw than the 5 speed ones. If you want a short shift kit for the 6 speed you are looking at either forge, neuspeed, or dieselgeek. I'd go for the diesel geek but then I'm biased.
    Some will just change the front to bck throw whilst others will change both front to back and left to right. Expect to pay 60 - 70 for front to back and 130 for both.
