my V&S is excellent. feels like a rifle bolt. that bendy plastic OE shifter was just terrible.

My UUC feels like how the car should come stock. I wouldn't mind going shorter.

anyone have one off of ebay, like the $30 ones? how well to they work? will they make anything wear down quicker? and dont respond with "search" because we lost alot of good stuff in the crash.

the B&M ebay clone feels like garbage; it flexes like the stock plastic unit.

i have the v&s and it's solid but you lose pushdown R

ehh i dont see a benefit for push down reverse anyway. we all know when to use that gear =)

i like my uuc, but if you get the uuc you have to have to have to make sure you get the cartrige bearings for it. this is the best thing you can do for the uuc shifter. i have also tried several different knobs and the razo weighted one has by far been the best.
