Sorry not that i know of. then again i can't look at my own car because i'm stuck at college without my foci right now. Maybe someone else can take a closer look to see if there is a way to remove the metal shift rod?

Thanks for that, I had tried them already and with shipping its gonna cost me 80 which I think is a bit rich.

I will try and find a MOMO stockist and see if they can order one in.

Is is possible to just shorten the factory shifter? If so, it would give you a shorter shifter but still retain the functionality of the O/D. My issue with the ATX shifter is not the look of the handle, but the HEIGHT of the handle! I'm tall and hate hitting my knee against the shifter (and occasionally turning off the O/D in the process). Anyone do this or know if it's do-able?

I saw that thread, but wondered if instead of installing an aftermarket shift knob, you can re-install the factory shifter (just cut off the excess from the bottom of the handle to make it shorter)
