Hi!

I wanna buy this short shifter, but I've heard bad things about the B&M and other cheap ones (that they break through and stuff like this), an actually I can't get a Steeda Shifter. So, what's your opinion about this one???



BIGTHX!

i got mine off of ebay for like 30 bucks shipped... Easy install and does what it says it does, shorter throws....

I'm happy with mine... just make sure you get the one that fits your car, they changed the shifter after april 2002....

no, i purchased one and was very unhappy with it. its not worth the time, hassle, nor the $30 + shipping.

I haven't ever had any experience with OBX products. I have the FC race short shifter. I like it a lot.

I found my Steeda shifter on ebay for 40 bucks. You can get on there you just have to keep your eye out.

installing them is easy. take the shift knob and boot off. unsnak linkage in front unscrew the 4 screws, lean shifter to drivers side and pull it out. do oppisite to get it back in it takes about 20 mins. max. oh and when you put the boot back on you'll need a new zip tie. thats about it.

b&M is not cheap or crappy. tell the person who was driving that car to stop TRYING to kill it. its expensive enough
