Initially it is amazing, almost too good to be true...
The instructions are for the best part in German, but that is what you expect from IL anyway, so you have to be fairly competent to fit this correctly.
After a couple of weeks, I started to get a whine in 2nd on the over run.
This is now in all gears and on acceleration as well.
I can't begin to tell you have much this wears down the synchros in the box.
Wouldn't consider this unless you have a track car and like gearbox maintenance every week....
Yep, I swapped back to the factory shifter after 3 weeks, and a full synchro change.
Alas, no further problems.
