    Upgraded to GT3 shifter and no regrets
    (Victoria) | July 23rd, 2017
    I decided to upgrade to the 997 GT3 shifter and I am totally happy with it. Much more precise shifting and very little play. I made a video to show what a difference it makes: This is a must upgrade for anybody driving a manual 996

    Should be the first thing done to any 996. Super easy to install -- way smoother and more precise than original shifter (which felt long, sloppy and fragile)
    Excellent upgrade for 996

    Install went very smooth. Very nice upgrade for 996, mine is a 2003 C4S with 50k miles. Smoother shift and slightly shorter throw. Wish I'd done this year's ago!
    997 Shift Console Upgrade
    (Kansas) | August 16th, 2016
    1999 Base Boxster. I was a little hesitant when I ordered this - was going to go for the B&M short shift. No regrets anymore! Wow, what a change from my original shifter. Installation took two hours start to finish and that's with cleaning up what was under the console and tightening up my parking brake cable. Shifting is crisp, clean, and precise, what a difference from the old shifter. Be sure to mark the cable position with a Sharpie before you take them out of the original cable ends. Otherwise very straight forward installation. Highly recommended. Thanks Suncoast!
    Shifter upgrade from 996
    | May 11th, 2016
    Fantastic. Used this as a replacement for the shifter on my 996 C4S. 55K on the car and the shifting is much more precise. Wasn't awful to start, but made it much more concrete. Highly recommended upgrade. Pretty easy to install, too. Use the B+M short shifter installation instructions.
    Great value

    Easy installation, substantial improvement in feel, distance and feedback. Nothing iffy about being in gear. Much less play in the knob when in gear.

    I received my shifter in 3-4 days (good).Removed console and cleaned area installed and adjusted shifter and reinstalled console, in less than 1.5 hrs. Very Easy!! And now i have a brand new tight shift instead of a 14 yr old slop shifter. Great Value
    Easy Upgrade

    From 996 to 997

    The throw from 1st to 2nd is definitely shorter. This shifter isn't quite as smooth as the 10 year old one it replaced on my 2000 C4C, but I like the shorter and surer feel when shifting. It has character now as opposed to being all over the place. It was a 3 hour install so with the total cost factored in, I think it's a good upgrade.
