There is nothing as important to the feel of your car as what you actually touch. This includes the seats, the steering wheel, and of course, the shifter. Many people have mentioned that installing a Dieselgeek Sigma Shifter should be the first mod added to a new car. In the pursuit to make our own cars the best they can be, we have created the finest short shifter with the best materials, engineering, and craftsmanship to transform the way your car feels and in turn how you feel about it.
Each and every Dieselgeek Sigma Shifter is made in the USA to our exacting specifications and tolerances by a collection of passionate machinists. As always, the Dieselgeek Sigma Shifter is guaranteed as long as you own your car.
We are excited to offer you the best shifter we could possibly make, the Sigma Shifter. Our Sigma Short Shift Kit utilizes an all-aluminum front-to-back cable end with a race-proven steel spherical pivot bearing. Lesser shifters use a stock Audi/VW rubber insulated cable end which is optimized for economically assembling the car at the factory.
The side-to-side cable end is fortified with our Perfect Pivot bushings. The factory glass reinforced composite cable end body is ideal for the lightly loaded side-to-side cable. By using a performance modified stock cable end, the super slick adjustment function is retained. This makes adjustment, or readjustment, a breeze! The Delrin Perfect Pivot inserts do not have any free play which means they only rotate on our precision cable end pin. They do not flex side to side and will transfer motion without any losses.
Since the OEM cable ends have rubber damping parts and large tolerances, the shifter feel of all other shifters is nowhere near as solid or precise as our finest work, the Sigma Shifter. With the addition of our Sigma Shifter your car's shift mechanism will no longer feel like a cable-operated shifter, but more like a solid lever shifter from a high-performance rear wheel drive car. We designed the Sigma Shifter cable ends in the pursuit of shifting excellence and we succeeded! Getting the rubber out of the linkage has an unexpected and profound effect on shifter feel. The action becomes light yet very positive, giving your vehicle a precision feel that no other shifter can match.
The other difference between the Dieselgeek Sigma shifter and the competition is that our shifter is equipped with our Dieselgeek Slider. The Dieselgeek Slider mates the front to back assembly with the side to side bell crank and controls left to right gate selection. Since we have redesigned the side to side lever to reduce throws even more, the black sliding piece was also redesigned at the same time. We selected a very precise, long-lasting, self-lubricating structural plastic material guaranteed to last as long as your car. The cheaper factory white sliding piece found on all other short shift kits have large tolerances built in and is made of a plastic that will deteriorate rapidly with heavy use. This makes all other shifters less and less precise as time progresses. We have eliminated shifter degradation permanently with the Dieselgeek Slider. The performance difference of our Dieselgeek Slider can be felt on the very first 2-3 gear shift you make. You will love it!
The Dieselgeek Sigma Shifter has several YouTube install videos below and is definitely a do-it-yourself mod for those of you who do not mind getting a little dirty. Every shifter can be installed easily within one hour and you don’t have to remove anything on the bottom of the car to install it. All parts install in the engine bay. Call it an automotive bonding experience!
