I've got a 2001 Tib, with auto transmission and I was considering getting one of those Level 10 Shiftronic manual shifters so I could get better control:

<A HREF="http://www.levelten.com/store/import/items/electronics/import_shiftronic.htm">http://www.levelten.com/store/import/items/electronics/import_shiftronic.htm</A>

Unfortunately, when I contacted a salesperson there, they informed me that it's not available for my car.

Does anyone have any success stories with using one on a Tib anyway? What about alternatives (apart from buying a new car without the auto <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle> )

I think even with shiftronics the car is going to be slower than a manual. I suggest either trade for a manual Tibby or when you saved up $$$ then get a CVT Audi <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Someone at TeamSR.org has an appt with Level 10 to adapt their shiftronic for the tiburon auto tranny. Result will be posted both places once it happens.

One member has had the level10 torque converter re-work and LOVED IT!

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.

As one of the sites Administrators I welcome you two VW owners.

All car makes are welcome around here especially if they are not starting sh!t.

Besides can you blame them for wanting to hang around us? <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thanks to everyone who answered my questions! I found the thread on TeamSR, but it looks like that's more of a pre-release thing. I did get some more info from the Level 10 sales rep though. He said they're still developing it, and they are hoping to have it done in December.

By then I'll have talked myself into getting the torque converter and hydrosystem service as well so I'll get all 3 at once. After that I should be set for the turbo <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

I had them send me a picture of what the setup looked like and it wasn't pretty. It was a picture of their prototype so I would hope the production model would be nicer.

Twisted, any chance you could post the pics here? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see what it looks like since they don't have a pic of it on their web site!
