    Short Shifter Question

    I bought my 11 sedan with what I was told was the Factory installed STI SS. How can I verify this? I was looking into purchasing a SS w/ Bushings but I do not know how to tell what is currently installed. Apologies if this was answered before or if posted in wrong section. Food for thought, the shift knob is a 5 speed knob that says STI.

    Hmmm I just bought a 2014 with the STI short shifter and I was actually wondering the same thing. It hasn't really felt like a short throw shifter, so I was starting to get suspicious... my shift knob doesn't even have STI on it. This thread makes me paranoid now

    The sts doesn't come with a new knob. Its just a new lever, and linkage.
