Upgrade the classic SMARTSHIFT2 solid linkage kit in your Mk3 with this short shift lever. Installation requires less work when compared to starting with a stock lever. Plastic is eliminated for even less deflection and incremently sharper shifting. Of course, the main benefit is remarkably shortened front/back travel. Features 2 adjustment holes to dial in amount of shift reduction (by 12% or 31%). Vehicles with fresh (non-sagged) engine/transmission mounts can safely choose the ShortShift2 upgrade. Otherwise sheetmetal interference is likely.
