    A4 B9 Short shifter + Crossrod Upgrades (6-speed model)

    I have finally received my car back from JH Motorsport with the shortshifter and cross-rod upgrades installed.

    Their combo adds a real sports car feel/feedback
    im the gear lever in exchange for a little extra “click” and “clunk”. The throws between gears have been shortened DRASTICALLY and for some reason feel a LOT more precise than factory (which is very precise).

    PROS:
    - Precision
    - Reduced movement for gear changes
    - Feedback in the gear lever
    - Overall quicker shifts

    CONS:
    - Some vibrations are heard due to solid cross-rod
    - The clunky noise (for me it’s a pro, but for most it may not be) when changing gears
    - Extremely heavy reverse spring

    In my case the only surprise I have is the super stiff reverse push-spring, other than that the 2 items in cons I expected and was ready for. Highly recommend, they’re the only ones who make these!

    The throws between gears are much shorter and crisper, the lever itself sits almost at normal height (slightly shorter than stock).
