Gear Shifter Upgrade for Mark 5 Jetta : Nov 2013Upgraded a Jetta Mark 5 with the E35 shifter belonging to Kenneth. He wanted an upgrade for his tired Jetta and a nice E35 shifter to move him away from his Jumbo Jet 747 landing gear shifter was the perfect item. Got the modification done in about 30 mins at his office basement carpark in Biopolis

UPDATE : Oct 2013
My Passat B6 conversion from B747 Jumbo Landing Gear shifter to GTI knob shifter Mk5 . Transferred the knob and boot from the Mk5 GTI shifter using the original B6 boot trim and base plate ! Now shifting the Passat DSG seems like I am in the GTI minus the Power though.

Converted 2009 EOS to the Scirocco DSG shifter ! A happy customer ! Also did the Scirocco Sport Steering as well !
THE PROCESS :
Converting the side shifting "Jumbo 747" aeroplane landing gear shifter to the more exciting GTI shifter......using the latest Scirocco R Shifters.
The difference between the two shifters ( side and front ) is the plastic lifting shaft having the slot located on the side or the front. In order to change to the front shifter, it is necessary to convert the side shifter to the front shifter.
