If you are on the table about this... buy it. I haven't been in the VW scene for a few years now but when I had my R32 I had essentially the same shifter as this one and it was perfect. HPA is a fantastic company. Keep up the good work
I own a VW Golf GTI 35AE and it already came from factory with an OEM Short Shifter (the same used for the Audi S3)... So my HPA short shifter was installed at the 35% reduction position and it really rocks!
