has anyone installed one of the knock-off ebay short shifters for about $80? I have been looking at those, the schnell and the B&M. I imagine the B&M is the best but don't have too much extra cash for that option now. I was getting ready to order the schnell kit with the extra linkage but wanted to get some input from people that have used them?

Love to hear what everyone is using. Good or bad remarks.

Thanks,

Ryan

I'm watching this post to as I need to do this fix in the next month due to a horribly stiff left/right slide, but want it at a discount. I know this has been covered ont he board 101 times but I want to know what the bottom line is for inexpensive solutions.

I purchased the schnell short shifter and it has worked well for me. The instructions are simple and easy to use. They do not come with a small tube of grease which I recommend you get. Perfect fit and makes a big difference... makes you ask yourself "How come I didn't buy one sooner".

Did you have any problems lining things back up? Did you get the kit which includes the shift linkage kit as well?

Where did you buy yours and what did you pay if you don't mind sharing?

Thanks much,

Ryan

I have the B&M shifter in my '02 S. This is a huge improvement over the stock shifter and though some have coined these as "notchy", it is just the feel I was looking for. I did not replace the linkage, as my car had 8k miles when the shifter was replaced. Do take your time and carefully mark the position of the cables before removing them; this will eliminate having to go back and fine tune if you rushed through this process. As far as the knock-off shifters, I would not hesitate to purchase one as I think it's been documented that these are pretty good quality; the bushings are the only suspect area. Use a high quality grease and be certain to "turn" the shifter around as it comes mounted backward, most likely to avoid legal problems from other manufacturers.

No problem linking things up, NO it didn't include the linkage kit. I bought it from ebay and it came with 2 seatbelt schnell wraps. Just buy it and ENJOY!
