it's fine for shifting, in fact, it makes it easy. alls i have to do is flick my wrist to shift, cuz i have long arms too.

it gets in the way when i'm traying to cuddle with my grilfriend at a drive in movie though, lol.

I have a manual '04 with an armrest. When down, the armrest gets in my way, and when up...the armrest gets in my way. If there was a way to tilt the armrest to less than 90 degrees I would be set for life!!! It would be comfortable that way. ALas, that would require some fabrication which--I might try to accomplish.

I had one in my ZX3 and couldn't stand it.

So now I have one with no armrest and I'm happier

So if anyone wants a dark charcoal center console with a armrest, PM me. I'll hook ya up
