      WOW, really? Just search? Somehow you have the idea I haven't spent hours looking into this already? You kids are something else. If it's been so extensively discussed, my searches sure haven't turned up anything having to do with this problem... OK smart boy, lay it on me, got a link?

      I'm finally modding the car. I have a South Bend clutch going in along with a Fluidampr pulley to keep the chatter to a minimum. Was debating on doing the clutch delay removal and a BFI knob at the same time.


      Question about the BFI knob-- did you get the shift knob adapter to make it taller or do you think it's unnecessary ?

      Basically I'll be taking threads like this one to VW Customer Service and bitching at the about the situation. I mean I bought my car at the end of the model year, a problem like this should have gotten to Customer Service or the Warranty Department before this. It's obviously a common enough problem that a Service Bulletin" needs to be released on the cheap butt bushing the factory is using.

      I'm not looking for VW to cover the whole cost, obviously I did make the mistake of putting into the wrong gear BUT, It was WAY TOO EASY! And like you said, for VW or anyone else to say I don't know how to drive a stick shift is just insulting.
      We'll all be praying for you

      Now back to reality. From my 27 years of experience, to enjoy this particular gearbox you'll need:

      1- Short shifter kit: https://www.goapr.com/products/short...trans_6mt.html
      2- Solid bushings: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-part...929ecs0102akt/
      3- ECS Bleeder block: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-part...001284ecs01kt/
      4- Clutch stop: http://www.burgertuning.com/clutch_stop_VW.html
      5- Spring delete: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ng-removal-DIY
      6- Dog Bone: https://store.034motorsport.com/mqb-...-aluminum.html

      Optional:
      1- APR Metal bracket: https://www.goapr.com/products/shift...ket_mq350.html
      2- BFI weighted shift knob: http://store.blackforestindustries.com/manual2.html
      3- PedalBox: https://www.pedalbox.com/us/vw/golf-.../pedalbox.html

      I have all of the above except the weighted knob.

      Like he said I'm into almost all of those mods except the ECS bleeder. I had issues with the one on my MKIV and now I'm scared of them.

      VW will do NOTHING for you on a mechanical over-rev. They don't care. It's user error. I'd just take the lumps and order some of the parts stated above. They'll make a big difference in its behavior.

      Nope - I didn't. Here is the only thing I got: http://store.blackforestindustries.c...heweshkna.html

      It is damn near perfect.

      How did I miss this?! Eventually I'll fiddle with mine. I am also leaning toward the SB clutch as I didn't have good luck on my MKVI RSR. I would very much like to read your reaction to the change (and the chatter).

      The clutch delay is a must. I had started to drive it harder now and again and noticed that the clutch would seem to hesitate to pick up despite my left foot being all the way out. With an aftermarket clutch you really don't want it.

      Yeah nice. Not all in the same car. Try adapting to some of the trucks I've had to drive over the years, good luck find some of those gears altogether..

      Why aren't you into the bleeder/clutch valve delete? I've heard nothing but good things about it. I was personally going to buy the bleeder block for my GTI sport.

      Awesome. I'm going to go ahead and order it too! I was also 90% on the clutch delay removal that's happening now too.

      They bleeder from ECS that I had on my MMIV was defective. They offered to let me return it. I never replaced it with another aftermarket bleeder. Tentative about doing it now.

      I'm totally into doing the clutch delay removal. I've just been waiting to do my clutch install first.

      Oh okay. That makes sense. I haven't heard one bad review from their bleeder block or friend doing the delay removal in general.
