After a sudden decision last week. I decided to purchase the Forge Short & Side shifter from Graeme at GNJ Motorsport. The s3 should have come with these standard. The distance between gears is unreal and having a side shifter also reduces the distance from side to side. Almost like a quick shifter. The change between gears is seconds.
I will get a video uploaded soon to show u the quickness of having a short shifter and side shifter :-)
P.s if anyone is interested, contact gnj. They have the best price for this kit :-)
