    My god!

    Got it all adjusted and back on all 4 wheels earlier and the gear change is amazing! Like a whole new car

    Feels tighter and the throw is shorter than my GFs 30k mile MR2 so I'm pretty happy at the moment.

    Sound great mate!

    About the MK4 parts... You took the cables, shifter tower that sits in the gearbox and the shifter itself?

    I want to know what MK4 Golf that came with the 02J gearbox...

    I think the shifter tower was from a mk4 Golf, and the shift mech and cables from an S3. But they should be the same. I then got TT shiftweight which reduces throw a bit I think and all the Polo parts from earlier in this thread.

    I'll get some photos up asap.

    I think the Polo parts came to around £100 from memory

    Another thing to add to this is the way the Reverse light is setup is slightly different. After a lot of delving I found that part 020 945 415 A will fit the standard VR reverse plug, and also screw into the Mk4 style shift tower. About £10 for the switch.

    6n0 711 090 a - base plate £7.38
    6n0 711 611 c - selector arm £8.15

    I've started getting the parts together for this conversion.

    So here is the new shifter assembly along side the Corrado shifter.









    The height of the actual stick is way longer than the Corrado so I've cut this down to match and will re-thread the end, it's still the original length in the photo's.

    When the shifter box is fitted to the Corrado tunnel, the stick will sit about 10 to 15mm higher if my calcs are correct, you can see the height comparison of the spring tops in this photo.



    This photo shows the comparison of the section of the shifter that will sit inside the car, the Polo box has a little more bulk to it but it should drop into the space without any interference with the plastic surround and gaiter.



    The only other thing I can see different is the centreline of the actual stick sits about 5mm further back than the Corrado but not enough to bother it, you can see it in one of the photos.

    I just need to get hold of an 02J selector tower now, then I can get it installed.
