Any Numeric Shifter customers?

I was just looking for some feedback from this product, from what I hear it's the best shifter out on the market. I'm highly considering it so I'd like to hear what you guys think, thanks

I'm still very happy with mine.

You've probably already seen it, but here's a link to my review:

https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...er-review.html

I never got around to trying some of the different settings like I had planned on. The rev matching issue I had has gone away, or I've just adjusted my driving to work with it.

And the price USP is selling it for now is a good bit less than even the pre-order intro price I paid. It's a great deal on a great shifter.

Good to know. The only concern I have is from your review actually, you described how you had to file down the brackets in order to make the linkages fit. What other modifications will I have to do, or has the shifter been slightly updated to not have this problem?

I got one of the first build and those blocks have since been updated. Dan even offered to send me a set of the new blocks, but I declined as it was already installed.

The modification took all of about 30 seconds, so I wouldn't worry about it.

ok i have installed the numeric shifter. as this car continues to surprise me when i removed everything what do afind but some brand of billet short shifter!! so i wont be able to compare it to oem.
install is very straightforward and honestly getting the console BACK in place was the hardest part! i installed everything THEN adjust the cable blocks to fit the cables.
first impression was first was hard to find but after 10 mins. of driving and shifting the car feels normal and gears shift is crisp and very firm. i went for broke and set the shifter on nthe shortest setting from the beginning. barely feel the h pattern now it feels like a forward and backward only movement but hits every gear every time. beers all around!!

Had the shifter in the car for a week and been driving the car for the last 4 days. Shifts are firms and precise they feel solid and I have to say its the best shifter I have tried. b&M and the 997Ssk don't hold up like this. I am rough and it works great. I have also used CUP cables so it may be a bit different.
I have to say that it's a great shifter and you will enjoy it. GL

I have a 997 shifter not the ssk, how much of a difference should I expect? As of now I love the feel of the factory 997 shifter. I wouldn't mind trying the numeric shifter though

I think you can convert it to a bookend or a door stop.

I now run the Numeric Shift after being far from happy with the OEM SSK, I have now had time to really test the gear change quality. 100% shift rate, with no bulks or wrong gears selected even being flat at the rev limiter and cornering and braking. This is how Porsche should have done it.

Still no noises or vibrations just super accurate and positive shifts with no play. Best mod I have done by a long way, the pleasure is back in driving now I don't have to 'think' the gear change when flat out.

Cheers Dan!

Option #2. CAE.

Not subtle. Numeric for stock boot for sure.
