With the Gene Berg bus shifter now fitted, it seemed only right to take the VW split screen camper out for a spin to test the gear changes (any excuse!)
When changing an element such as the original VW gearstick, It’s easy to think what possible difference can that it make? It’s hard to imagine that it can make that much difference to the driving experience, but how wrong can you be!
The increased height and changed relative position of the Gene Berg shifter (100mm/4″ longer and about 100mm/4″ closer to you as the driver) makes a world of difference when driving, it is just so much more comfortable! The 35% reduction in the original shift travel is also just so much more of a ‘positive’ feel, no more fishing around and leaning forward to find the correct gear! So all in all, a fantastic upgrade to the VW split screen driving experience – happy days indeed!
