    Terrific for Cayman GTS
    (Chicago Suburbs) | August 7th, 2019
    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.

    Awesome upgrade. Much better shifting precision. You won’t be disappointed.
    Carrera T has this...
    (Chicago Suburbs) | May 11th, 2019
    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!
    Much better than stock
    (New Jersey) | June 15th, 2018
    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.
    Great improvement over factory shifter on a 718
    (Toronto, Canada) | June 3rd, 2018
    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).
    SSK upgrade AWESOME
    (Miami, Fl) | February 23rd, 2018
    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.
    A Better Shifter
    (Sarasota, FL) | November 13th, 2017
    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!"

    (Portland, Oregon) | October 23rd, 2017
    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.
