    Terrific for Cayman GTS

    This kit is great. I had it installed at my local non-dealer tech. When I picked the car up, I got almost all the way home and remembered, "hey, they installed a shifter! I didn't even notice it." It's so intuitive that it really does disappear. There's no better shifter than the one you don't notice everytime you shift. The stock one feels like an old pickup truck to me...not bad, but too long. This is seriously perfect.

    I did not realize how "soft" my OEM stock shifter felt until I replaced it with this short shift kit. Now the shifting experience with my Boxster feels much more solid. This is a relatively inexpensive upgrade that you touch every day. DYI installation is risky. The center console cover panels have to be removed. The the plastic holding clips can easily be broken in the process. The attachment to the shift cables has to be done correctly.

    I just traded a '19 Carrera T in on an '18 Cayman GTS + $$$$. The T had this sport shifter as standard. It is terrific on a 911 7-speed. I'm thinking seriously about getting one for my new CGTS.

    I have a 2018 911.2 GTS. Did a TON of research about this product in advance and read all reviews/ blogs/ etc. I focused specifically on the few negative reviews about this being notchy or too sporty. I am glad I pulled the trigger and got this shifter. It is incredible and I LOVE the car with this. I really think it should be a stock product for the GTS!

    Nicely weighted, precise and intuitive. Took an already great driver's car up a notch. My dealer installed it and charged 2 hrs labor, but it was worth it rather than risking damaging any pricey interior trim by attempting it on my own.

    Easy installation for anybody who can do their own oil change. Max 1.5 hours, taking it easy and slow. This is a great improvement over the factory shifter. Not too notchy or hard. Very precise. Car should've come with this shifter installed from factory. Even shipped to Canada is a good deal (end-up paying around CAD400 in the end, after exchange rate, shipping and taxes).

    Just completed the SSK upgrade and I’m very impressed! Shifts are closer and your hand/arm angle is more comfortable. Watched the 991 911 DIY YouTube video and the guy walks you through the mod, took 3 hours and a few tools. Strongly recommend, well worth the price.

    If you bought a Boxster or Cayman with a manual transmission, you probably want to be engaged with maximizing the driving experience. This shorter shifter does just that! The standard shifter was a bit too tall and the throws a bit too long. This product gives you a more positive shifting experience, less sloppiness, and "it falls readily to hand!"

    I had my dealer do the install. Minimal side to side play in shifter. very precise shifts, short throws requiring more effort. Shifter spring loaded, Feels like a completely different car. I thoroughly enjoy it. Some may not, as it does require more effort to move the shifter around.

    Night and day, just don't think too much about it and do it! close to a 2 hour install, very straight forward, took my time. Again, cannot stress how much better the car feels.

    I love buying from Suncoast and to this point have always been happy..until now. The shifter works great but I was disappointed in how they packaged the item. First it's just wrapped in brown paper, no bubble wrap or air pillows. For an item with linkages you would think they would secure the item better. There is a plastic cover for the top to keep the shifter from moving but due to the inadequate packaging, it separated from the shifter during transport. Very happy with the product, just unhappy with the packaging. I did have it "professionally intstalled", and only took and hour for the tech to install it.

    Just installed by my local Porsche dealer (2 hours labor, less a $50 coupon). Looks great and definitely 'crisper'. This is a nice, relatively inexpensive modification that will not hurt your value.

    I bought this from Suncoast this week and installed it today. Wow, what an improvement. Installation took about 1.5 hours. Only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner. Thanks Suncoast for quick shipping.

    Awesome improvement! This is how the car should have come from the factory.... If you are mechanically inclined, the install is fairly straight forward. Note: no install instructions are provided. Otherwise have it professionally installed.

    Definitely an improvement over stock. It's heavier, but feels more direct. Relatively easy to install.
