Tongue The shorter the shifter.. the ... err..

Picked up this little beauty almost a week ago now!! Much improved over the standard unit. I've got rid of the rubber cladding at the bolt location, so not it's not spongy like before. Direct shifting, shorter throw, is great!! Bit of a reach for some, but suits my monkey-man long arms :s6:

Thanks mate. I'm learning from you, slowly, but it will still be a while before I snap and stupidly sell my pride and joy for a shytebox.

So when are you gonna get a REAL car again and have something useful to offer? :s6:

Hey my taxi is not a shitbox, it a very sensible mode of transport. As for getting a real car again.....who knows, wont be too long and as for something useful to offer......not sure that will ever happen:s5
