I asked about this a while back, apparently it has a much shorter shift than the A5 already, although I would like the shift to be a little shorter too.

Just got off the phone with Jason @ JH Motorsports re: short shifter. Anyone near him? San Fran / Bay Area / Central Valley willing to have him take a look at your S5, and try to get a short shifter out there, for all of us to enjoy????

the s5 still needs a shorter shifter, it's still too tall . . .
This would be different from a "short throw" shifter, which I believe is what the original poster is talking about. Just FYI, a shifter is a basic lever, so shortening the height reduces mechanical advantage, so it would actually require more effort to shift the gears. I've done custom mods like that in the past, and usually end up just wanting to go back to stock and deal with the height rather than dealing with a notchy and heavy shifter.
