    Top MOD that needs to be done

    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 :-)

    Re: Top MOD that needs to be done

    Got one of these myself from Graeme a couple of months back and can give them a thumbs up as well. Put a review on his site and as said there it looks like a 10 minute job but I spent a good hour and a half adjusting cable tensions to get it right, well worth it though. The gear shift feels like my old RX-8 now, short and nicely notchy

    Mods since owned: Milltek Resonated TBE, Neuspeed P-Flo, Loba HPFP, Sachs Clutch with Loba SMF, Unicorn Motor Developments custom remap, brakes + suspension upgrades, LEDs internal and external, more interior kit

    I got my mate from VW tech to fit them. We fitting is minutes but adjusting take a while.
