Good Upgrade August 2, 2016
Reviewer: M. Navarro from Sheffield Village, OHIO  
Running APR Stage 2 with downpipe I noticed some clutch slip last winter. A couple of weeks ago I noticed slip on the highway on a 5-4 downshift. Time for a new clutch.  I also figured it would be an ideal time to have a short shift kit installed, so I ordered a Dieselgeek Sigma 5 after reading positive reviews on the forums.

The install of the short shifter took some adjusting, but that was expected. What wasn't expected was how hard shifting became with the kit installed. Fortunately, this was fixed after I remembered to remove the clutch stop. The new clutch grabs lower than OEM, so it was necessary to get full clutch travel.

I have put 1000+ miles on the setup and am very pleased.  The short shifter started out notchy and required extra effort, but it has become smoother over time with nice throws. I really like how this upgrade improves the car.

Sigma 5 SS install on 2009 Jetta sport wagon August 1, 2016
Reviewer: Kurt from Boston.  
Just wanted to say thanks for a great product. 1:30 min install. My Jetta is fun to drive now. Very solid shifting with a great feel. I had a very stiff side to side movement with my stock plastic bracket and the sigma 5 fixed that and more. If your side to side movement gets stiff as the car gets hotter, it's the plastic bracket.  The Sigma 5 is the way to go.   Thank you.

Short shifter July 29, 2015
Reviewer: Bart from Iowa  
Put the shifter on and it works as advertised. The directions were very thorough and pictures were great. The original shifter had 229,000 and there is a night/day difference with the short shifter. Very happy with this purchase!!!!!!

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Nova Scotia, Canada  
Excellent product, installation was easy.   Yes, EASY.
I knew it would make a difference, wasn't expecting it to be this great.  Surprised at how intuitive shifting has become. Great product, great price, shipping was fast, instructional support is excellent as well.
