Hi All

Recently purchased a 996 turbo. The car is stock and i want to leave it that way except for maybe adding a short shift for the gearbox. I live in London so does anyone have any recommendations for a short shift manufacturer that is proven with a 996 and also a reputable garage to fit.

Cheers
Neil

I have one of Alex's and have tried back to back with a factory SSK and prefer Alex's... So just get it Smile

Also, there will be enough loose change under the console to at least pay for the shipping Wink

I fitted one of Alex’s kits - easy diy with great instruction from Alex and the SSK feels fantastic.
Took me about 1 hour to fit.

You could do a whole lot worse......
