Cheers to married blonde for the shortshift...

Well what a difference this kit has made. It must reduce the gear change distance by 40%[:D]

Simple to fit - 30mins that includes getting your tools out, putting them away after and washing your hands.

The instructions supplied are lengthy but very clear...

I fitted the race shifter...

Any questions pm me[^]

I have to say its much more positive.

I always felt the r32 shift felt false (does that make sense?)

The reduction in throw is really amazing.

The race shift has a more mechanical throw - ie. clunk, clunk, rather than the false weighted vw throw!

Does that make any sense????

I keep hearing good things about these diesel geek short shifters and am starting to fancy one.

However my tdi 130 is still on the soft suspension with the 15 inch avus 2's, and the huge sidewalled 65 profile tyres. I am content with this and am not the sort of guy who wants stiff racing car handling. I prefer the big cushioning and comfort side of things with a nice relaxed drive.

Diesel geek short race shifter seems to give the impression of whipping up through the gears to give max acceleration and 0-60 sort of driving - is this the case, or could my relaxed style be suited to the shorter click through the gears of one of these??

TBH the shortshift is more suited to those wanting a sportier throw.

Not really for relaxed driving.

i ordered the 'ultra' shifter. it came to ?108 delivered. Same price for the R32. You could get the 'race' version for slightly cheaper.
