yeah i got mine when the dollar was a bit better and found it a little cheaper.

i had to drill out my old knob with a 12.5 mm drill bit then screw it on the shaft of the shifter.
that lasted about 3 weeks the i got a cheap momo gear knob for 10 bucks and fitted that with a black leathe boot surround. :D

including the shifter it cost me about 110 buck all up
60 odd for the shifter
10 for the knob
and 40ish for the boot surround

and pretty happy with the outcome.

it was ok, just the quality isnt as good i thought, but for the price i cant really complain...
considering i did gave it a hard time, as you do with supposed upgraded performance like parts!.. and the centre bush disintergrated, the thin locating pin snapped (the pin was only cast) and the 4 bolts that hold the upper to the lower pulled out and took the alloy thread with them..

it depends how you treat it i guess, benj has one and so do a few others and afaik none of them had any troubles..

just a inside tip though, i measured the leaver point(fulcrum) and these shifts are no different in the shift travell in a std shift. its the bolt on lever that leads you to believe its much shorter.. the only thing that makes them better are the adjustable stops..
as i had fixed mine by using the factory centre shaft, factory pin and machined the factory bush down to fit ...

i think what troyman said was the shifter itself didnt give a shorter shift apart from the fact that the gear stick was shorter, and the part that goes into the gearbox is the same as the standard one, and the only real good thing about it was it was little metal stopers so you dont over shift
