    I'm looking to see if there is a kit or spare parts to upgrade the 1.5 console/stick shift to 2.0/2.5 push button.
    Having the reverse gear in the 'front' has already caused me to back into concrete parking block.

    Never heard of a conversion kit.
    Since you want to switch to buttons I assume you simply miss-shifted based on previous car shift patterns you have known.

    The "shifter is just a switch that looks like a old sports car gear shift. The actual shaft disassembles (unscrews) in many places. You could shorten it, change/remove the shifter ball and make it more of a throw switch than a stick shift. That may help defeat your muscle memory problem.

    Most people that change from a 1.5 to a 2/2.5 post how much they miss having the stick. But everyone has there preference I guess:)
