View Full Version : Insanely smooth shifting

The other day I drove my friends 01 A4 1.8T, chipped, intake and exhaust. The shift on it must've been aftermarket. At first I thought it was just a different knob, but then I realized how smooth it was. Everyone compliments my car, but damn this was insane.

Also, when I went to put it into reverse you didn't need to push down like with stock. What would cause that?

Whatever it is... I want it.

2000 - 2001 do not have a push down shifter. Also, I'm sure it was a short shift, or a DTS. Either that or he's just good at driving (like myself of course).[:D]

My V&S short shifter is like that. It shifts like butta especially compared to the notchy APR short shifter in the S4.

I thought it was short shift but the no-push down confused me. I drove it, and there was definitely something aftermarket.

-adds short shift to MODS TO DO list-

I didn't know that there were some Audi's that you had to push down for the reverse. New to me ........ [confused] [:D] [up]

its an aftermarket shifter....lots of them offer to eliminate the push down for reverse. thats not an uncommon thing.

My car was just off warranty and completely stock when i bought it........we aren't talking about who took it off or put it on. I am saying, 99.5 and mine did not come with one from the factory.

yeah i'm a 99.5 and mine came stock from the factory with the push down reverse....no reason why i would add that...must have been a feature then. i know aftermarket offers to take off that push down reverse.

Thats really weird. why does mine not have a push down reverse then? I have a "99" with the 99 style gauges but the 2000 exterior and no push down reverse. maybe they changed it in some short period of time?

That is a 99.5 Analog clock in the tach, newer door handles, one piece headlights, bumper fogs, non drive by wire, etc..

^^yea its registered as 99 but its a 99.5 definately not a 2000 and as VT_Quattro proves, some of our models have the push down and others dont.

wait, wait, wait..

did you think to ask your friend what was done to his car?

either DTS, snub mount, shortshifter, or the last time he changed his transmission oil?/

He bought the car with all the aftermarket stuff on it and doesn't know exactly what it is.

99.5 is definitely pust-down reverse, but aftermarket shifter like V&S eliminate that feature~
