Hey...

Does anyone have a picture of the STi shifter or does anyone know where reverse is located on the shifter? I'm used to VW's with the reverse up and to the left. Anyone know where it is? How about on the regular WRX?

From the look of the shifter reverse is right next to 6th.

135
246R

There is a ring below the knob you need to pull up to engage reverse. I can't remember where I saw a good close up of the stick.

Yup.

My BMW has reverse up to the left. Everything else I drive has it down to the right. You'll get used to it. :smile:

There's a picture of the sihfter in STi Specs-JDK/UK, under interior, in interior shot showing dash. Not the best picture of the shifter, but better than nothing. Or you could try and sweet talk Bullet into posting a good interior shot or just one of the shifter.

I think most European car makers put reverse next to first.
R135 or R135
--24---------246

While Asian cars keep it below fifth.
135
45R
Or next to fourth on 4 gears.

34R

Or next to 6th like my Supra.

Which I think will be just like the STi with the little thing you pull up on and all.

Actully no pushing down or lever to pull on the BMW. Just more resistance to overcome. It takes a concerted effort to push the lever past the 1-2 position to be able to engage reverse. So much so I had to ask the salesman how to do it when I went for the test drive over 4 yrs ago. :smile:

No way to grab reverse instead of 1st unless you're really hammering the lever. And gear boxes are way too expensive to do that anyway.
