  1. This should be the first upgrade you do. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2020

    Having previously owned two other vr6 vw's I bought this before I even got the corrado. sure enough when I opened the hood it was already broken to pieces and the previous owner had tried using nuts and bolts to make a new one.

    anyone with a 12v vr6 should buy this part today before yours breaks to pieces.

    Took me 15 minutes and a little adjusting and now it's better that new.
    Thank you!

  2. Outstanding And Quality Part 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2020

    It installed quickly and I gained better than original feeling in the gear shift. I noticed that the plastic piece flexed a lot and this one is functioning perfectly. I would also say that this company has outstanding customer service. They handled an issue that I had outside of the part and immediately contacted me to make it right. Will be ordering in the future.

  3. a must. 5 Star Review

    This is the second time I’ve installed one. Fist time was many years ago. Just recently got another mk3 this was the first thing I had to do.

  4. How it should have been from the factory 5 Star Review

    Thanks for a really quality piece! It’s so solid it makes me wonder why they didn’t make it like this from the factory. Super easy to install too.

  5. Easy Peezy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2018

    15 minute install. Definitely improved the "Slushbox" feel on my Corrado's gear throws. Also, when I took the OEM piece off it had a big crack in it, so I guess I defused a ticking time bomb as well!

  6. buy nice or buy twice! 5 Star Review

    Super high quality!

  7. Good part, could use a couple helps in package 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Nov 2017

    spring clip is a bit tricky (dropped twice, but I had a small strong magnet), it would be nice to have a small tube of grease for linkage, adjustment instructions would be helpful. I had no reverse until I adjusted all the way toward the back of car. thanks

  9. sweet part 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2017

    I'm honestly glad my plastic piece broke. After installing this I am super impressed. The gears are much closer from side to side. It's so nice. I'm also glad it will never break again.

    -- Thanks Adam. Yeah Ive been running this part since 2001 on my 1992 Corrado SLC, havent had that problem again :) Take care let us know what else you need !
