Like i wrote in my previous thread, the sports button has no functionality. It needs to be coded by the dealer... At the moment, stage 1 is all about looks...

I like the shorter stick, would it be possible just to change the lever and nothing else, or would you have to change the surround and gaiter etc.

That is awesome. I like the sport shifter (SAT) better than my non sport shifter. How is it working and is it just like the non sport shifter. If so I may go for this retro fit down the road.

Thanks, Rick....

You have exactly the same functionality as with the non-sport shifter. It looks awesome, feels awesome and is not as fragile as the non-sport shifter. I would do the retrofit anytime again..

No, the shifter on its own is not possible. You need to change the shifter, the ECU, the console cover and buy the sports button!

Ahh that's f%$#ing great. I like the fact the that you can change the shifter and not have to modify wiring and other things. It's basically a plug and play item except for the sports button. I like it allot....
Total in US dollars?

Let us know when stage 2 is done and does it work well.

Thanks, Rick...
