    there are quite a few different kits on the market!

    I been told if you go to any Audi dealer and pick up a TT shifter that it reduces the throw by quite alot, havnt got round to it yet, but been told its a nice easy cheap mod.

    Dan, dont quote me on this but the TTs did come both in a 6speed and a 5 speed, and either way it shouldnt make a difference as its just the bracket to the linkage IIRC, its not like the selector etc..

    should be fine, if someone does have the part no. that would be useful!

    VAGTech fitted the HPA Short Shift to my S3 just after I got it (coming up for 3 years ago). One of the best mods on the car and I've had no problems with it.

    Mine came with some comprehensive instructions, took 35 mins or so, fairly straight forward job tbh, I'm no mechanic!
