your gear stick wont be any shorter but you will notice a huge difference in travel. Keep in mind they usually free up abit after some use

yeh i know theyre extremely tight when new even the sock ones r.
theres kits u can buy nyway to shorten the stick so thats no problem (id rather a shorter stick the factory 1 looks too high for my liking) have u actually used one before?

If your thinking about shortening your stick think about the drivability not the looks. Been there done that, learnt the hard way

i have a mick webb shifter in my car and the shift time is s**t loads less, you will notice a huge difference well worth the money
Its very stiff at first so expect to have a sore shoulder while the metal loosens up!
