There is nothing as important to the feel of your car as what you actually touch. This includes the seats, the steering wheel, and of course, the shifter. we are excited to offer you the best shifter on the market, the Dieselgeek MK5 MK6 Sigma 5 Speed Shifter. The major difference between our Sigma Short Shift Kit and the competition is that Dieselgeek short shifters use all aluminum cable ends with race-proven hardened steel spherical pivot bearings while all other shifters use factory Audi/VW plastic and rubber cable ends which were optimized for economically assembling a car at the factory. Since the OEM cable ends have rubber damping parts and large tolerances, the shifter feel of all other shifters is nowhere near as solid and as precise as the Sigma Shifter. Getting the rubber out of the linkage has an unexpected and profound effect on shifter feel. The shifter becomes light yet very positive, giving the shifter an expensive feel that no other shifter can match.Completely redesigned MK5/MK6 Sigma 5 Speed shifter includes billet aluminum cable ends for superior feel and durability under pressure.Check out this install and review article in Diesel World Magazine.
