    I am against these quickshift things. I drove an astra with one and all it was was a shorter stick, annoying and quite stiff to engage gears.

    Thats just my opinion though.

    i used to have one on my mini (proper quickshift), worst thing i bought! Thats just a different lever, doubt it would do much.

    Mine actually worked a treat on my Vec B, made the shift feel much tighter. Wouldn't work on the Vec C though, totally different linkage.

    Probably cut down and bodged up in a garden shed. On a proper quick-shift the modification is done below the pivot point on the gear shifter, making the throw and gate appear to be a lot less.

    It's a standard Astra gearstick, the same as most Vectra B sticks, just an inch shorter... No bodging, just a shorter part.
