Hi, is it normal for the gears in this car to be at an angle, for example when you go into 3rd, it goes up but also towards you a bit, and when going into a gear like 4th it goes down and away from you a bit?

ive been told it depends on how your selector is mounted but i just wanted to know if this is normal for this car and if it isnt, will it be causing an damage/excess wear?

thanks

I don't actually know the answer to this. It does sound quite normal it will typically push rods into the engine bay altering the gearbox selector arm. If there is no undue vibration it should be ok.
