As above. I'm curious to know just how [un]common column shift is on the VR-VS. I recently purchased a column shift ute, personally, find it to be a lot more practical than a floor shift auto ever could be. Just not as fun as a manual.

The bench seat + extra room makes it well worth it.

Anyway, what are people's thoughts on the column shifter in these vehicles?
 

love the general

Mum used to have a VS exec wagon bench seat car. The column shift was awesome.

The car was immaculate at 140,000ks and she traded it in and got 2 grand off a VZ executive :bang: and the dealer turned around and sold the VS for $6k.

I seen 1 of these coumn shift VR's in the wreckers on Friday - should look at the parts and see what is still on the car and how much they want for the parts - it looked complete inside.
