    Question Short shifter - Astra G F23

    Just a couple of quick questions which I hope someone has the answers to

    I have a 52 reg SRi Turbo, Will the following short shifter fit my vehicle

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SHORT-SHIFTER-...item5883c588ef

    the information on the listing suggests it wont, I think my vehicle has an f23 gearbox but am not 100% sure

    Are the short shifter's cheaper anywhere else ?

    many thanks for your replies

    m5,
    The eBay supplier, you referenced, wisely suggests you check with a Vx dealer to be sure of the gearbox type fitted to your vehicle. As you are unsure, I would respectfully suggest this is the very first thing you should establish. It could save you a lot of money for any incorrect item ordered.

    Cheers Ronnie, I did read that, I was 99% sure that my car has a f23 gearbox, I read somewhere online about identifying different boxes etc

    I would normally contact vxl but my local vxl is closed until Tuesday (well parts and service counter)

    (Many thanks for pointing that out though.)

    Aye, it's a big difference over the standard stick IMO, I used an Irmscher Titanium knob.
