The HPA Short Throw Shifter is manufactured from an all new dedicated casting which is CNC machined to precise tolerances.

With designs for MK4, MK5, MK6 and MK7 platforms equipped with 02M/02Q 6-speed Transmissions, these versatile pieces of hardware can be set up on one of two different positions to suit your preference: a sporty 20% reduction in throw or a more aggressive 35%/40%.

The perfectly balanced shifter counter weight gives each shift a precise and positive engagement and greatly improves the feeling over the sloppy stock shifter.

The bright zinc plated finish ensures that the stock appearance of your engine compartment is maintained while protecting the casting from corrosion.

Includes threaded pin / ball connection for connecting the shifter linkage, and easy to follow installation instructions.

Crispy, tight, short shifts!! Review by Lazaro
If you own a 6speed manual, This is a must. I installed this at the most aggressive setting. I’m the original owner of my MK4 R32 and I didn’t know why I didn’t do this earlier! Shifting is tight, nice short throw.

You will not be disappointed with this product. (Posted on 12/17/2018)

Have more fun shifting your manualReview by Paul
This kit really improved the feeling of the six speed manual on my Golf R mark 7. I use the less aggressive setting and it works great for shorter and firmer shifting (Posted on 6/28/2018)
Perfect FitReview by Francis
I have had my short throw for roughly 3 years, and it has held up amazing. I never grow bored of the change it gave my R32. (Posted on 6/28/2018)
Great shifter feel and worth the priceReview by Luke
Cleaned up sloppy shifter feel in my R32. Especially when combined with solid bushings this is a must have for any R32 owner. (Posted on 6/28/2018)
Mk4 R32 HPA SSReview by Glenn
I have ran this SS in both R32's I owned (1 previous & 1 current) as well as recommending (& installing) it in 3 other friends VW's over the years. This is a great product.

Best upgrade everReview by Darryl
After installing this short throw in my Mk4 GTI I realized I would always want the same throw in any other car. When I bought my R it was a no brainer that I order this within a matter of days of taking delivery lol. The most aggressive setting is perfect to me and easy for daily driving without the long rowing. Major kudos!!! (Posted on 6/14/2018)
Drastic awesome changesReview by Ryszard
I bought this 4 years ago, and it DRASTICALLY changed the feel and shift distance. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who is able to get their hands on the elusive manual cars.

The ability to change the distance to multiple settings is always a plus, but I prefer mine on aggressive.

I am extremely happy with the short throw shifter I got. (Posted on 6/1/2018)
