Hi all just put an empi shifter in my bay very easy to fit 2 bolts and a bit of rubber and carpet to trim very nice shift now well worth fitting

Hi Daz

i'm thinking about getting one myself, possible for a layman with very little technical knowledge to fit and set up/adjust and did you have to trim the carpet a lot?

Just fitted mine today. Was a bit of a faf getting it to work properly but it's all sorted now. Simple job when you know what your doing.

The gear change is so much more positive. Would definitely recomend.

If anyone else is going to fit one, you neeed to use bigger of the two spacers that are supplied.

What issues did you find Kiteman? I'm thinking of getting one myself
