I like mine. It's a Dieselgeek; shift throw reduced 41%, I think, but the real improvement is the feel. The other good thing about the Dieselgeek is that it replaces the whole assembly, not just the shift lever, and it costs less than the B&M, the Neuspeed, alot of the more popular ones. I've heard good things about the stratmosphere one also. Actually, the only one I've heard someone not liking was the Neuspeed. SS is so worth it on our cars.

For the money, the V&S is king. Great shifter, reduces throw perfectly. You can also request they cut it down it you want it lower than stock. Cost is about $130, and it's a great product. I had one in my A4 and loved it.

I have the new hipershift shifter by Stratmosphere, its awesome, The shaft has 2 grooves for the ball, so you can adjust it from stock short setting to the shorter setting. it has a 35 percent reduction on the standard setting. Shifter is tight and solid , no flop what so ever, and it costs 179...

I was driving around today and i just felt that shifting from first to second took a mile. my elbow was goin behind the seat so i really need to get one. which one do you think is the best for under $150? I dont wanna spend to much considering its just a shifter but let me know your thoughts!

No one has had a wide variety of shifters on their car. People generally are pretty happy with any short-shifter they get.
Just round up the ones around $150 (Dieselgeek, V&S, Stratmosphere are the ones I know of) and pick one.
