[Es2] RS2 shifter

If anyone has some specifics on this please send them to me.  I'll have to search on
this later - would be good to know about doing this as an alternative - I think I have
an S4 linkage, but must not be B5 since it obviously won't work, or maybe I'm missing
something.  It is conceivable that modifying the length of some of the rods might do the
trick, but still missing something that adapts to the transmission itself.

Thanks for the info. Peter - I'll check it out when I can.

I do know that folks that have been installing 01E transmissions have successfully
modified the B5 S4 shifter and rod assembly, without the need for the RS2 parts...

there are a number of threads on Motorgeek, under the user ids
fasterthanrs2 and a4kquattro....
