"Incredibly precise shifting!" - Brandon L.
All hardware necessary for installation in an A1-chassis car included. (This includes all Rabbit1/Golf 1/Jetta1, both original Sciroccos, and Rabbit-based Pickup/Caddy with 5-speed). Also see this excellent SmartShift DIY thread for Mk2/3 which closely resembles the Mk1.
The linkage system in these vehicles is nothing short of a modern wonder. It is truly mind-boggling that they can become so loose and sloppy and yet still allow gear selection. See this customer-contributed video for ample evidence. Is it a cruel joke that you're the only person on Earth who knows how to drive your car? Actually, you're not alone. Replace your worn out parts with a SmartShift kit and feel the difference! You'll be amazed. We promise.
For just a bit more precision, go ahead and add an UNDERCAR Bushing kit to your vintagemobile and smile. Or, for the real deal, go with the GENIUSPACK1 which adds a short shift lever and the highly rated MushMeister, too. For those who simply must have it ALL, the ShiftBase1 is another logical upgrade path. Go for it!
