This is with the plastic repro 911 ****. If you wanted, you could fit a new shift insert in there. But, i'm afraid it wouldn't feel "solid". Feels plasticy.

Hi Streetdaddy,

The stainless sleeve looks great. Where did the rubber boot come from please or is it the stock 964 item? It looks like a very good fit around the tube.

Cheers,
Paul

Looks great, Streetdaddy. Would definitely be interested in checking out the final product and would likely buy depending on pricing.

Yep I'd take one (5 speed) cost dependant as long as it could be shipped to the UK.

Would also prefer the full kit if that's an option.

By the look of it there is a few from UK who are interested so probably cheaper to have a box of 10 sent over.

Default Rothsport

Why not call rothsport and see if they can have someone machine a shift pattern into the top of the 1 piece short shifter they sell.

I imagine they'd gladly do a group buy for us. I have the piece and it's really great. Awesome feel, super clean look and functional too as it shortens the throw.

Because the rothsport shifter is $400 where as these should be sub $100.

Just realized that BFI makes a **** for our cars, wonder if we could chat with them to get the proper shift pattern engraved as well as get them anodized: http://store.blackforestindustries.c...heweshknp.html

Plus, the short shift kits dont work with c4's without serious mods.

I am getting my anodized billet aluminum **** today. Will post pics.

I'm really liking that BfI **** as a possible alternative. Plus, the center piece seems removable,,and any local engraving shop should be able to fabricate the circle with the appropriate shift pattern.
