Im looking at getting a short shifter for my ute and was doing some searching via eBay USA and have come up with the following at ridiculously low prices but just want to confirm that one of them will suit the T5s made here in Australia.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/83-04-AL ... ccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/83-04-FO ... ccessories

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MUATANG- ... ccessories

Ive found plenty more but this is just the select few I put up. They all look the same but hows quality go for such an item??

Cheers, Justin

I do believe so, stupid not to buy one from the US at the price. There was someone on here flogging them for $200+ and same as eBay AUS!!

Bloody ridiculous really in a good way :lol: And the Aussie market is complaining about spending our money overseas, if everything wasnt jacked up in price well maybe the money would be spent here but oh well I got a cheap shifter :)

If you want one of the best short shifters going around, head to www.mgwltd.com.
With the Aussie dollar being so strong, you can pick up a top class shifter for a little over $200 delivered.
I've got one in my car and will only ever purchase MGW again.

Hmm they do look like a top piece, but the price of those ebay jobbies is REDICULOUS!
At this point I am mostly after the cosmetics of the shorter stick and for that price I dont think I could have the original resized!
