i bought my car with the b&m installed so i have no comparison to the stock one but it did feel nice untill the ball broke off the bottom. i got my steeda sts for $179 with the knob and it was unassembled. the little helpr plate made shifts from 2 to 3 and 4 to 5 a little smoother but the rubber stuff on the knob made my hands black so i slapped the b&m knob back on the steeda shifter for now.

thumbs up for steeda/ford racing

Yeah I was wondering the same thing. On c-f-m.com they have the f2 sts and like he said it's only $90....does it work just as well as the steeda or frpp?

I Chose fidanza, Ended up jsut chopping my stock one down and was shorter but the fidanza actually shortens the throw and makes it a lit cleaner so now i dont miss third gear like before! Good buy! plus it was cheap sense they sponsored me :) No complaints
