    i have a Stratmosphere but i would suggest a b&M because my new shifter is a wee bit taller than the old one ... but shorter throws kinda wierd huh and it didn't replace that crappy plastic shift ball i have the push down kind ...
    1998.5 Audi A4 2.8LQM is what i got.

    where did you buy your B&M shifter? It doesnt seem like most other come with knobs, however i could be wrong. Also, will the stock boot fit on it that cleanly? thanks

    It all depends where you get the shifter from. I bought my b&m from ecs and didn't get a knob with it.

    I might go with the ebay one...you can get them shipped for like 45 bucks. I heard you have to shave down the ball a little to make the clip fit, but ive personally got more time than money. theres another thread called ebay short shifter but for some reason i havent been able to post links.

    Is this the height that the B&M comes at or has it been cut down
