S-Tronic Shifter Retrofit -

For anyone who wants to swap their OEM S-Tronic for a upgrade, it will require the shifter rod to be rotated 90-degrees to change it from an OEM side button to an OEM front button. There are two ways to accomplish this; you can either use a heat gun and twist it (riksy!) or cut it off and reinstall it with a threaded rod to secure it in place.

Step by step instructions can be found here thanks to andy mac & MT-V6!
