Is fitting it different from Auto to Manuals because i got one for the wreckers but i returned it as the shifter would not go all the way up because it was hitting the console in the test fit, i was thinking that i may have to change the shifter but i would like to know if anyone else with an Auto made it fit into an EB

If you're just doing it for cupholders you can put the in-dash ones like on my car. They're out of a U13 Nissan Bluebird, and with a little bit of modding, they look factory! There's no clearance issue with the gearstick for me either

nope. No problem with the headunit either. The cups sit nicely in front of it, and while it covers a few of the buttons, it's still easy enough to access them.

I will be attempting it for my Auto today but if not today then some time this weekend, i feel that the EB Shifter Rod isnt big enough to fill the hole in the AU Changer but swapping the Tbars shouldn't be much of a problem !
