    I have a cheapo one from ebay - well, I say should of been cheapo at £59 delivered, but I won it for 99p.

    Sweet.

    I love it also, my shift throw is set to be the smallest it can be :)

    Exactly the same as above. Got one on my S3. (Shortened throw ie: Up+ down)


    Love it love it love it :) :)

    OK, not sure on where you can buy one off the shelf, but you can fit the TT Shifter which gives you a shorter gear throw. It's just not adjustable.

    Lots more info on this thread on Vortex http://uk-mkivs.net/forums/p/209780/1356402.aspx

    Am I reading this correctly, will the selector from a MK4 R32 fit an 8L S3 and reduce the throw all for the princely sum of £25...? Or am I confused....

    As I read it (from the thread on the above link) the R32 shifter would work

    To be fair, for £25 it's certainly worth a go
