We figured with the thousands of snarling, angry and built B3 and B4 Audi's around the world, that an ultimate short shifter option was required. Working with our partner JH Motorsports, we are proud to release the SOLID shifter for the B3/B4 application.
A no-compromise design with a bearing pivot design and new steel shift shaft, this is the final short shift upgrade you'll ever need. Adjustable from about 15-40% with rock solid, no slop feel, this shifter will completely transform the way your B3/B4 shifts.
Solid billet aluminum base, bronze ball bearing and steel shift shaft, a direct fit for OE linkage and knobs.
Fits all B3 and B4 chassis cars including 80/90/Coupe Quattro/S2/RS2 and others.
On cars with carbon fiber driveshafts, this short shifter cannot be used in the lowest throw position.
The nature of this kit eliminates the push-down reverse lockout, meaning the trans will no longer have to push down on the knob to engage reverse. Accidental engagement of reverse is still nearly impossible. The 012/01A-series transmissions have an internal lockout which prevents selecting reverse without first selecting the central neutral position. The 01E will grind but reverse cannot be engaged if the car is moving forward. We have had customers build mechanical reverse lockouts for the 01E if it is required. You cannot engage reverse directly from fifth gear under any condition.
This shifter is awesome makes the car feel like its new again. I have it on my 1988 Audi 90 Quattro and if make a world of difference from what came in the car. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to upgrade from there stock shifter.

Next to the 034 Injector Kit, this has been the best purchase that I have made for my 1990 Coupe Quattro. It dramatically increased the "fun factor" in driving my car. Thanks 034 for bringing us this great product.

I drove the car for about 30 minutes last night after a simple install and it seems to perform very nicely. I was impressed with the solid feel and the accurate shifts that the unit makes versus stock and versus the legendary "billzcat" improved oem short shifter which I have drove with for 5 years. The throws were noticeably shorter and there was a lot less play while the shifter was in each gear. There is the option to remove one of two spacers to lengthen the throws if you do not like the super short option. It is very well made and worth every penny.
