I wasn't planning on getting a short shifter originally, but after my oem shifter broke I was pointed towards this one. This thing is amazing! It gives a much more solid feel while going through the gears and makes the whole driving experience of this car overall more enjoyable. I have mine set at the shortest throw setting and medium height. Add this to your mod list, you won't regret it.

I do not recommend this shifter. On first install you notice that the shifter's neutral position is no longer in the center of the shift boot, but rather sits in the OEM sixth gear location. If that aesthetic doesn't bother you the performance will. Shifting into reverse and into first gear is a nightmare. The shifter scrapes on the OEM plastic internals and sixth gear is a struggle due to poor central placement of the shifter. I uninstalled the part after driving for 10 minutes or so. The shifter was not livable.
After reading the other reviews I was surprised I was experiencing so much trouble. I thought for sure I had a defective part. I contacted CorkSport about my problems and they told me I had to re-install their shifter and film my issues before they would even consider sending me a new shifter. Apparently they have a no return policy so there was no chance of getting my money back. I've been a mechanic for 4+ year. I installed the part correctly the first time around and couldn't believe their poor customer service.
Honest truth, all of it. I will be spending my money elsewhere from now on and I recommend you do as well. CorkSport will likely remove this review from their site so if your reading this, get out while you can.

Had to pick this up after the stock shifter wouldn't go down into reverse. Its a nice overall unit the adjustable height is great. Also you can turn the shift rod around to center a aftermarket shifter knob more easily which helps alot. I left the shift throw at the stock or longest throw position for my own reasons so i can't speak on that part but i like it overall and would recommend it.

Great f**cking product!! This shifter blows all I've tried out of the water. Feels so solid. I removed my Corksport short shift plate upon shifter install. I did leave the CS weight though. I hate the OEM one. I have it set to the shortest throw and shortest height it's still smoother. I'm not a fan of the fact that it's not centered anymore; it sits more to the right, due to the fact that there aren't bends in the shifter shaft. But I do understand why. The height adjustablility would be compromised. I'll think I'll get used to I though.

I just broke my Cobb short-shifter and moved to this one. The CS shifter feels a lot better and has less slop, the actual design being also better and fixing some of the issues the Cobb unit had (such as re-using the white collar the spring sits on, and using a too sharp pin for pushing the selector cable lever for 1st, 2nd and reverse).
So yeah, I highly recommend this one.

I paired my short throw shifter with the rigid shifter bearings from corksport. The install didn't go quite as quick as estimated but once it was complete, I was surprised by how amazing the shifts are and how much more solid the transmission feels as I row through the gears. the only improvement to the package would be to include spare plastic retaining clip for the side action actuator. Other than that, loosing the shifter bearings when installing were the cause of my project delay. Overall, the workmanship of the shifter itself and the value is top notch. Thanks Corksport!

Great costumer service and great product!

Amazing product!! Install was easy and results are beyond my expectation. Pair this with the CS aluminum shifter bushings and it changes the whole feel of the car! Shifts are smooth and more precise 2nd to 3rd is straight butter! All around more then amazed and happy about this product.

Great quality shifter. Seems really well made and very simple to install. I did have to remove the center console for easier access but after that the instructions were spot on

This thing is just amazing! There really is no other way to put it. Shifts are smooth. Also, feel very solid. Build quality is really good. Looks even better in person. As far as installation goes, took me less than 30 minutes. It does not take anytime at all to install this at all, if you're mechanically inclined. If you're not, just take your time, and use the provided instruction from Corksport. Thank you Corksport for making such a great product! Like I said, absolutely no problems at all with the product. I would recommend this to everyone looking to get a short shifter.
I installed this on my 08' speed3 and it is very off center. It is centered in what looks like fifth gear which is kind of annoying. When in sixth it rubs against shift boot too. How do I fix this? I want to have it centered in the center.
Does this shifter retain the reverse lockout feature where I have to push down to slide it into R? That's the only detail missing from the description... I don't want to accidentally slam this thing into reverse at a stop light or something!
