Need a short shifter for the EF, the stock one just aint doin it for me anymore lol.

Now I've seen some advertised for EA-AU, then BA-F (I think it was, could have been E-series then AU-BF, but anyways), and they look pretty much identical, as you'd expect, however the B series are cheaper everytime.

I've been told by someone who sells them that they are the same for all of em. Anyone know?
Also can the Bseries gearknobs go straight onto E series sticks?
If not would it be worth getting a Bseries stick for the EF, and tracking down a Bseries (or aftermarket Bseries) gearknob? The one GlenBA had looked sweet as.

One last question - anyone know where to get short sticks from, and at what price? I know of 2 (possibly 3 if Bseries are the same) prices, $50 to $90 or so.

Cheers fellas

Yeh thats the one I was lookin at. The one for about $100 delivered has a bend in it though, would that be a positive change, or just something different?

The short shifter I have fitted works OK, better than the OE unit.
