    WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE "RIGHT" ORDER?

    - PSE SPORT EXHAUST 3,000 EURO
    - SHORT SHIFT 900,00 EURO
    -TELEPHONE MODULE + CD CHANGER +OPTICAL FIBRES 2,750 EURO


    THANX FOR YOUR INPUT

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    I wanted to know about the short shifter what is that?

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    Shifter is the one option that will directly effect your driving experience each and every day.

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    It shortens the throw of the gear stick so you have to move the gearnob less distance to change/engage the gears and be quicker. The downside can be that sometimes the shifting is less precise and a bit more dificult since you have less distance to travel you also have to aim better or be more precise.

    Since the 997's throw has already been significantly reduced compared to the 996, its not as necesary as in the 996, so I'm waiting to try one personally before I go for it. But its a matter of personal taste also. And I have read posts of people who have installed it and loved it.

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    I agree with all these option that you want to install. I wouldnt put though to my car the telephone module. too much money for nothing...

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    Thanks alot
    since I'm willing to buy a manual 997tt I needed to know that but unfourtunately we cant try it here
    anyway I will get some opinions before ordering it

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    I have tried the short shifter on a demo car. I liked it alot and will order that option. But I did not compare it to the standart 997 ( only to the 996 and It made no question which one I was getting)

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    i will first see tha standart manual transmission and then place the short shift if i am not satisfied with the standart one.

    the problem is that i am going to keep the car for only one year as i will buy the 997 turbo so i dont want to place many extras.

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    Aisxos which cabrio you ordered 997 cab or 997S cab?

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    I bought a 997s cab black manual which I ordered from Mr. Neris in Glifada... he has the car there but he can give it to me on 6th of April

    Because I also will have a 997S cabrio in basalt, could you please post some pics of yours? I didn't see one yet in black.

    The short shifter seems to be pretty useless and anoying in everyday use, while driving with cold geaarbox it shifts very "stiff". Did red somewhere that the original is pretty short already.

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    In order of preferrence:
    1. Short Shifter
    2. Sport Exhaust
    3. Telephone & CD Changer

    Re: HELP WITH RETROFIT OPTIONS

    I agree...
