    Just like a !CAGS Eliminator, there is only one. The rest are just cheesy copies.

    Search is your friend.

    I tried a UUC and had no idea it was a short throw. I knew something was different but didn't know what. Then I was told that the car has a UUC.

    I love my B&M.

    I love my B&M too, never tried the others. Some say the B&M is loud, but I don't think so.

    B&M $200 on ebay, Katech $250 from lingenfelter, UUC...not sure but I think almost $400 from Lindsay?

    I figured I'd save some $ for other mods and went for the B&M.

    Katech for me, no issues, and love the feel...Very secure and simple instructions...

    This is my second Katech, the first was just a solid piece, but now they changed to a quieter model...

    I have a UUC, but I really can't argue with the guys about the price.
    My biggest surprise was the UUC knob. I put them in a week apart, and the weight of the knob made a big difference. You probably can't go wrong with any of the shifters, but look for a heavy knob.
    Luke has them for $140 n $170. I'm sure you can find another heavy knob, but the UUC was made for this car. It matches the interior, and its the only one with our shift patern on it.

    BTW You do have an exhaust right? I'd go with an exhaust first , but thats just me.

    Are these aftermarket shifters good for daily driving? Would I see any difference DD'ing between B&M and stock? Or do you guys feel they're better just for quick shifts, racing, etc?

    UUC did make difference but i think it is still too long. I have not tried others so can't give much opinion. I bought UUC knob but returned it because of it's silver color and it stands out too much. if uuc make them in black i'll buy one for sure.
