    Hi everyone,

    I got my forge quick shift through the post this morning and having the day off work got it fitted.

    Not as easy as I thought the job was going to be but never the less I did it! It feels alot tighter but I think I'm going to adjust it again to make it even shorter (just have to wait till the engine has cooled down!!). i don't know about anyone elses S3 but I find my gearbox quite notchy as standard. But for £70 and about 35 mins of work I don't think that's bad.

    Do you have any pics?

    Does it do side to side movement aswell?

    Does it fit in the engine bay or under the gearstick.

    Just a different design I think. Plus you have the part which shortens side to side movement.

    It's less notchy with a quick shift?? I thought they make it worse?

    My gearbox is notchy as it is so makes no real difference to me just makes it nice and short.

    I got the HPA short shift kit and that definatly made my 1st to 2nd change smoother - its still a little notchy but with the standard linkage it was very notchy
