Looking at getting a Short Shift / Quick Shift for my 2012 ST2 eSTate; what are people's 'real world' recommendations as there seems to be a plethora of options such as AS; Steeda; Mountune; Forge; FSWerks etc.

Thanks in advance!

And discuss... :woohoo:

I have a Breedt on my RS and just bought the same for the ST (well a copy, the retailer I bought it from didn't have any Breedt in stock so went with the alternative, which is exactly the same), which I will fit soon.

I had a collins performance one on my mk2 many years ago and i actually preferred the shorter shift. I’m having the mountune one installed in just over a week, they all should give the same feel i should imagine the only difference between them will be the materials they are made out of...

I'm contemplating getting the mountune one too so I would be interested in finding out what you think!

Fitted a Breedt to mine set at 25%, seriously thinking of going back to the original, it has made the gear change incredibly notchy.

But it does smooth when everything is hot.

Been living with the mountune billet short-shift arm for a few days now, im glad it's on as i prefer the shorter throw but there is a more notchy mechanical feel to the shift now

I went for the fswerks shift plate. Works great and easier to fit than most due to the fact you don't have to remove the shift arm to fit it.

I should think comments about these making the shifter feel notchy are due to not recalibrating the shift cable after fitting. Takes 2 minutes and it makes all the difference.
