Bringing this back so that maybe those who have installed the shifters can help out.
Id like to install this in my corrado, but personally, I dont like where it would be positioned height wise. So id like to bring it down.
My idea is the following. Using the stock shifter box, but just the box, is mount the VWR/MS shifter to that. Thus it would still install from under the car and keep maybe a stock shifter height. Can this work?
In my head, I dont see why it wouldnt, with the new cables following the same path as the stock ones (up against the top of the exhaust tunnel). All that seems necessary is for each cable to have a guide so that it stays in a given position. I got the idea from the JD Engineering Corrado.
Look at the shifter picture (appears to be a VWMS item) and my idea seems to be a likely explanation for its low placement, when compared to other VWs.
So can it work?
