Haha I've skipped a gear before in the crap-tastic stock shifter... Friends were like, "dude, did we run out of gas??"

I nearly cried. =(

Yeah it would be a good investment if you manually shift the auto a lot (which isn't a great idea). But otherwise you're not going to shift faster than the trans if you have a tune, and if not put the $$ towards one, not the shifter.

But on the other hand, I think it looks a ton better than the OEM shifter and is more solid. My OEM shifter is starting to show it's age, so if I come upon some extra $$ I might consider one of these.

Is the faux satin stuff starting to scratch/peel? Because mine was in pristine condition when I bought the car, then about 8-10 months later I looked down at it one day and it seems my coat buttons or finger nails scratched it to kingdom come! I ended up painting it flat black and it practically looks identical to the black OEM one that some mustangs come with... Very pleased.

Mine is the all black one, just picked up typical wear-and-tear over the 6 years or so. Maybe a few fresh coats of flat black would do the trick... Ugh another winter project

=O

Yeah sounds like a winter project, you should give plasti-dip a go. People are raving about it, and you could always peel it off if it doesn't go well.

But then, you also touch that shifter every time you get in the car so I don't know how it will hold up to repeated contact.

LOL!

I was glad I was driving by myself when it happened.

had one 15 years ago in '79 Capri w/302. mine was a B&M model. like they said, it won't do much for performance but is fun to play with. if you shop around you could probably beat that price.
