012/016/01E Short Shift Kit, Audi 4000/5000/200 Quattro, UrQuattro, C4 Audi UrS4/UrS6
We Also Recommend
The 034Motorsport short shift kit for 4000q/5000q/200Q/UrQuattro and C4 UrS4 and UrS6 (all 016 and 01E transmissions) is simply THE short shift solution on the market at the lowest price. Rarely do those two claims work together with an aftermarket Audi part. These CAD-designed shifters are crafted from a mix of billet stainless steel, aluminum, and brass and are CNC-machined locally here in the USA. Every aspect of production is overseen to guarantee the quality of each individual piece and maintain reasonable machining costs.
This new design is installed from the cockpit of the car in 1-2 hours and provides numerous benefits over the stock linkage. First: it is infinetly adjustable in throw between 0% and 30% reduction. Second: the new billet aluminum design offers much greater precision than the OEM plastic linkage. Third: the use of brass and stainless steel for critical parts guarantees a lifetime of precise shifts with virtually no wear!
The 016 gearbox offers effortless throws and generally smooth shifting, but most linkages are now 20 years old and could really use some refreshing. Rebuilding the linkage is simple to do yourself, and with this kit you will wonder how you ever lived with such a sloppy linkage!

The kit includes all required parts and hardware.
Install: Tools required include basic metric wrenches and sockets (1/4" drive is fine), screwdrivers, a pry bar, and a pair of snap-ring pliers. Due to some sloppy manufacturing by Audi, you may need to spend a minute or 2 with a file or Dremel tool. Installation typically takes 1-2 hours, and we would rate difficulty as "level 5" out of 10. Online install instructions click here. It is definetly within the range of most do-it yourself-ers, but if in doubt, consult a professional mechanic.
Warranty: We offer an unheard-of lifetime warranty on all machined parts in the 034Motorsport short shift kit. OEM install parts come with a one year warranty as always.
Special Notes: This shifter retains all reverse lock-out features and is compatible with 5-speed, 6-speed, and 6-speed converted cars in all markets.
Shipping was fast and installation is straight-forward and easy with the instructions provided on the website. Really took a lot of play out of the shift lever on my '87 4000CSq. There is a little bit of slop still there but I'm assuming that has more to do with it being a 30 year old car (and maybe because I didn't modify my shift lever for 'max reduction'). At the end of the day 034motorsport delivered an outstanding product and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any other vintage Audi owners.
Great kit it really transforms the feel of the 01E

I first want to start by saying that I recieved the shift kit 3 days ahead of schedule which was awesome because I live in Alaska. I put the kit in with minor difficulty only because I have never done it before. Thanks to the detailed instructions I can now shifty quicker and smoother.Even though I got it for my birthday, it was worth the money.
