Is it possible to put F1 shifting on a 308 or a 328? I am in love with the F1 shifting. I think every car should have it.

Well there was a 1988? version of the Mondial which used a sort-of forerunner of the F1 system - the Valeo transmission, mated to the 3.2 V8, so I guess it could be possible. The system in those cars was well reviewed - maybe you can find one?

It's likely however that apart from the gearbox itself, getting & retro-fitting all the ancillary parts to make the F1 system work (numerous sensors, wiring looms, ECUs, warning systems, etc etc) would just be a nightmare & very costly. Bought everything as new parts they would cost more than the car when fitted IMO! :eek:

Per 4kids3fish's advice, finding a Mondial Valeo transmission would be your best bet from a cost standpoint. I believe it was a French system and used by several other French car companies.

In terms of putting a recent F1 system in a 308, it will cost you more than the purchase price of the car.

The F1 is awesome, but in this case putting it on a 308 would, in my opinion, ruin the classic gated shifter of the 308 which is timeless in and of itself.

The Valeo system is not the same. It is aMondial with a normal stick, only the clutch is automatic, so this is not a version with paddles behind the wheel.
