    When I bought my 9 care-full owner Disco II, I was advised that the gearshift was “anywhere for a shilling” as the bias assembly had evidently collapsed, so driving it home from the Midlands was a carefully crafted event. Having fitted a ‘SlickShift’ to my Defender previously, I was aware of the improvement possible. Before removing the gearlever, I took measurements of the two extremes in neutral side to side. After fitting Slickshift a second measurement was taken, which indicated a 50mm reduction in side to side movement. The improvement in gear selection is incredible and ‘Paddy’ the Irish Disco is a shear joy to drive. Many thanks for including a new FTC2203 Bush, though not necessary at present, as mine was perfect. Well done for providing a nice bit of clever engineering that does the job beautifully.

    A must for any Defender with a sloppy shifter!. Easy installation, great guidance videos, great customer service, great price. Slickshift makes all the difference in the world. I couldn’t be more pleased. Take note of the wear on the pillar. If the slots in which the gear changer rests are enlarged, now is the time to replace.

    Outstanding – great product. Stick travel is massively reduced and it slots into gears like a modern car.

    Excellent mod does as advertised quality upgrade. My Disco has only done 50,100 (2002) miles from new but has transformed the drive ability from the original and is a well worth while upgrade,

    Great kit that has massively improved gear changes. So easy to fit once you have wrestled the transmission tunnel out, but well worth the effort. Both the Puma kit and the Disco kit have transformed the vehicles. Many thanks

    Always found my R380 to be a bit clunky with quite a large throw ( this interfered with my cupholders!!!). Ordered the slickshift after seeing it advertised in Land Rover Owner International, arrived within a few days . Promptly fitted with help from the online video.
    Only point to note is that you will have to drill out and subsequently replace the rivets holding the plate on the transmission tunnel in place.
    Unfortunately I also had to replace the rubber gaiter underneath as it had split. I would probably had not known had I not decided to fit the ‘slick shift’.
    To sum up, easy to fit, feels and looks like a quality upgrade, and the best bet it REALLY WORKS gear changes much smoother with less movement and yes it is really ‘Slicker’.
