The Neuspeed short shift kit for the 2005-up Jetta V and Rabbit MkV easily installs onto the transmission's selector shaft. The Neuspeed short shift kit reduces the throw length between gears by approximately 40% - this is the absolute maximum reduction possible without overextending the cable mechanism.

The Neuspeed short shift kit incorporates a calibrated counterweight which is required for more positive shift action. Lookout for kits without the counterweight, as they will produce very notchy gear selection.

Quality Product.
Neuspeed always makes a great product. I have a 2012 VW Golf 2.5 liter. Beetle engine cover. Neuspeed P-flo, Neuspeed Short shift kit, Tiguan steel center caps. I am not very mechanically inclined but this kit was easy to install. It took maybe 25 minutes from start to finish. Make sure the the stock shifter has #1ko 711 051 k or m. My shifter was dirty so I had to scrub it with a metal brush to make sure that I had the correct numbers on the stock shifter. Read the full install instructions at Neuspeed. This is a very different feel in the throw of the shifter. Instead of that long throw that the stock shifter has its now basically No more slamming to go fast. Its nice. Its not as smooth as stock but definitely does what it says. Custom Cars Central was the best price on the net for this kit. Now that I am writing the review the kit cost me even less! The shipping was good and got here (Central New York) in a weeks time. Very easy to order and confirmation was sent to my email right away. When you do get this kit or any part, make sure you have all the numbers in order and make sure its compatitable. This kit is outstanding and I recommend it to anybody who wants an edge when driving.
Pros: Attractive Design,Durable,Easy To Install,Trusted Name.
Cons: Not For The Oem At Heart.

Great Product
I bought this short throw shifter to replace the stock shifter that came in my 2006 1.9L Jetta TDI. I bought the car used and noticed that it had a problem with grinding in 2nd & 4th gear due to extra play in the shifter, even after numerous adjustments. This short throw shifter solved the problem! It shortened the throw between gears and viola!, no more grinding because there is no longer play when shifting. And the best thing of all? I can now drive my Jetta around in style and not have to worry about skipping over "problem gears". So far as cons, I can't think of any. Fair price, great product! I would highly recommend this product and company for anybody looking to solve a similar issue, or if you just prefer a shorter throw. :-)
