Many thanks for the P/N on that. I’ve been using the rubber VW strap to hold my first aid and warning triangle since I purchased the car but always have to adjust it because the tension provided simply isn’t enough.Part number for the strap/holder
Part number for the warning triangle/holder. These come in two different sizes, this is the larger one that fits in this holder.
If your car is a US market car, then it did not. The strap, hazard triangle and blue (or orange) first aid kit were for the European market. So these are oem+ 'add ons' for us.I don't think my car came with a strap - just velcro on the back of the first aid kit that holds it in place for like 10 minutes.
It is!It is awesome isn't it? I only have the shifter not the bracket yet but such an upgrade. Coupled mine with a weighted BFI knob too. I am using all the weights APR included in the kit, did you use them all or did you go the other way and start with just one or two?
ahhh no longer letting the clutch out too soon? =) looking good my friend....!Christmas was good to me this year. My wife, that hates when I buy car parts, bought me the APR Short Shifter System and the Solid Shifter Cable Bracket.
I'm not super handy so it took a bit of doing due to my own inexperience with such a task. Once all of this was installed I promptly took the car for a test drive. It now shifts fantastically! The shifts are now very crisp and precise. I can't fully explain just how much I love it now!

After several days to reflect, I'd say go for it. My own lack of patience makes me tend to make things seem worse than they are. I'm easily frustrated by things that take any kind of moderate effort on my part. Sad but true. LOL. It's a very clean and subtle mod. Unfortunately it doesn't fit my phone. So I still don't have a comfortable place to set my phone.That's pretty slick, I had that part bookmarked for a while, I might just have to do it now
Oh you know, sucking away the money like any good cars will! LOL.... always something to buy to make you feel better about a car that should be pretty good already, right?. I'm not sure if your car has a usb input in the area for you to use this, but I bought one for my car and it's friggen great - see my post about it here:Haha! Yeah, I've got it mostly figured out now...mostly. It's amazing what a difference these parts made. They tightened everything up. Now it's an absolute joy to shift. It's not my daily driver so I can still be a bit clumsy at shifting sometimes.
How's the 7.5 treating you?
Nope, I'm the second owner. My best guess is that the original part had been removed and reinstalled at some point. They possibly cross threaded it then. When I removed it and attempted to install new hardware the new bolt must have followed the cross thread and really bit into it this time. Again, that's just my best guess though. I have no other idea as to how this could have happened. But, it doesn't really matter as I'm 'here' now.Damn, are you the orig. owner, or is there a chance it was done incorrectly before you tried?
