    What the best way of tightening it up?

    Bush replacement on the linkage on the gear box?

    What are the quickshifts like as i think the S3's are short throw anyway?

    I got some replacement bushes for the bracket under the bonnet from the US. Its certainly helped. However i think the issue is the shifter and mechanis in the car, NOT the gearbox end quite as much. i plan on fiting a B&M short shifter as this replaces the lot.

    Like the dieselgeek one!
    I think your right about it being after the gearbox, afew on here have had their boxs replaced or rebuilt and the problems stil persisted.
