    No luck...but free bump anyway.

    Why do you want to shorten it? Just curious. You shouldn't be manually shifting it. Is it for appearance only? Have you thought of just maybe an aftermarket knob?

    All the old threads I looked at on here said no one made an aftermarket shifter for the A4.

    I know someone on here replaced the A4 shifter with a T56 shifter handle (i thought) and added the boot to it, or something like that. It looked pretty slick. That's all I have... I guess you could cut it, then use a steel sleeve and weld it, but without a boot it would look like shit...and I don't know how much that would degrade the strength.

    I don't know what a new shifter handle would cost in stock form, but if it is cheap enough, you could try your method and if you f it up...you wouldn't be out too much coin.

    How much do you think you want to shorten it by?

    On another note, it's almost 2AM and I have to be up at 6...FML.
