 :eek: I've noticed that when i have the car in 5th, when i take it out of 5th back to the neutral position that it doesn't fully return to the correct neutral position without me pulling it back to almost engage 4th meaning that i cant block shift to 3rd or 1st properly, is this an issue anybody else has encountered?

Lubricate the two cables that pull the gear selector (above the clutch housing, by the battery) and maybe lube the bottom of the gearstick (fun to get out) - I'd use lithium or silicon grease
