    OK Guys, keep your shirts on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img] Here's what I know, the TT 5-speed tranny linkage does, in fact, directly replace that of the A3, shortening shift throw by approx. 20% It's a DIY job, took me about 30 minutes, but that's mainly cause I had problems getting the ball-joints to separate. As for the 20% reduction, that's someone elses measurement, but I CAN say that it shortens the throw enough to notice [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] For the first couple of days I kept having to double check each time I shifted, cause it didn't feel like I was in gear [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] But I'm glad I did it. Not to mention the fact that it only cost me 8 Euros (UK prices will, naturally, differ [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] )

    XXX1.8T first brought this to our attention, however, the original link, I have lost. Therefore I'm PM'ing Costa to see if he still has it.

    If anyone wants to try this I still have an B&M shifter for a TT which reduces the throw by a further 40%.

    Currently sitting in AMD's office - make me an offer [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
