I was told by somebody yesterday, that the Auto shifter, can be modified, something to do with the lockouts on it, so you can manually put it back to second, without having to pull the tab, as it would otherwise just move back to third. Does anybody know about this, this guy also told me that the police cars were modified in this way, although i think he was pulling my leg. I've searched the net and didn't come up with anything -

I thought that some of the BT1 commodores had this option.

What about the bit of the story about police cars and this being done, is that part just another myth?

and awesome for your auto by the sounds of it!

i know people that take the springs out of the auto shifter so you dont need to hold it up. quite silly really considering its not hard to knock them from D to R..

it is not an option for BT1/9C1, it is STANDARD in BT1/9C1 Auto's.
Every single Police Pack issued car that is auto will have this feature..

Considering ive posted this info here twice in the last 4 days and the info is readily available on the net, you cant have looked too far.
