I doubt you'll find someone who has done all of those things in combination. I can only say that each of those 3 upgrades is designed to help a particular area of shifting, and they will likely work well together. Do it and let us know.

FYI: I had Harry at A1 put in the Letsla shift kit with the 111 cables last year, my S260 shifts like it has solid linkages.

Yeah I think the 111 cables look the best among the rest especially with the letsla done as well might just go with the idea and see how it goes

Thanks for the feedback

Alitech looks the business but the new shiftR111 from Sector might be worth considering, certainly a lot less expensive than the Alitech. shiftR111 for Lotus S2 Elise & Exige

I have the LETSLA and the Sector Transcables and will probably get the S111 shifter. I can tell you the only part that seems to be lacking now is the shifter itself so I'm looking forward to it!

LETSLA and SSC cables, the SSC cables were top notch, I would buy them again.

Shifters personally I feel that the alitech is better as it is more abled to custom to the settings u want for the sector 111 shifters it doesn't come with the handbrake and it's not as customisable compared to the alitech my 2 cents of thoughts here just wondering how u guys feel about shifters as well looking for something that can suit each individual driving styles I Guess

I have an Alitech, it's a pretty sweet piece. There are lots of customization holes on the linkage connectors, so I think it should work fine with a Letsla. I don't have need of a Letsla in my case, but it seems like it would help clean up the slop on the tranny end. As far as shift cables, a new set of OEM ones will do you good-- over time the gray plastic sheaths on the ends will crack and break, giving the cable more slop.

* There's slop in the OEM shifter housing (mods can remedy this somewhat, as does the alitech)
* There's lack of adjustibility in the OEM shifter housing (alitech addresses this)
* The OEM cables deteriorate over time (I think there were 2 or 3 providers, as well as a company that will make custom ones for you for about the same price)
* The linkages on the transmission can have slop (I think the letsla also changes the feel of the shifts with adjusted pivots, IIRC)

You can definitely start with the lowest priced option and work your way up the dollar chain, and stop when it's good enough.
I'd first check your OEM shifter cables and make sure they aren't substandard. Replace broken parts first.
