Re: Anyone w/ B&M short shifter? know anything about it (02'jetta)

Search this forum and the Golf/Jetta IV forum. There was a post in there a while back with excellent pics of the B&M installed.
The B&M and the Autotech/Diesel Geeks are both short shifters but at the same time totally different products. The B&M replaces the actually shifter in the car with a shorter one that changes the shift linkage points inside the car. The Autotech/diesel geek are the exact oposite. They replace the shifter under the hood that directly connected to the tranny.
Here's a picture of both.
B&M $160 at http://www.titanmotorsports.com

Autotech $49 at http://www.autotech.com/new.htm

It's of higher quality, it's all billet aluminum and stainless steel. Very good, I've been using it for a few weeks now. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Does it make the shifting more smooth and less rubbery? I heard that you can change stock bushings to poly or even metal to get rid of the rubbery feel when going into the gate. what do ya think?

Yeah, definitely gets rid of the rubbery fealing. Gives it a nice notchy feeling. Not a lot of slop in the shifter anymore.
