I only gave this a 4 star rating instead of a 5 start rating because the install isn't all that easy its alot of delicate plastic parts that are hard to get out without coming close to destroying them. Very intricate tabs to get the original gear shift out of the plastic housing that it sits in and the 3 tabs are super hard to undo and keep undone while removing the stock shifter. You will have to exercise patience. I would highly recommend the 4 Corksport Base Bushings as well since you will already have the base unit unbolted. Once you have the new bushings in and the new short shifter in it rockets right into a 5 star rating. As one of the previous reviews state its PURE Magic, makes the speed3 faster cause you can shift so fast with this thing and it makes for very very nice solid shift notching no play whatsoever. Makes the speed3 super fun to drive and adds a nice high quality shifting experience to the speed3.
Definitely a dramatic improvement over the OEM shifter, especially when considering the price. Corksport has done an amazing job with this mod and the quality you'd expect is very much apparent. Installation was straight forward, adjustments to the shifter can be done quickly and cater to any driver's preference. Excellent job Corksport, now how about a performance steering wheel for us Genpu owners.
My car now has its 9th part from corksport. The products still continue to amaze me with quality. The only thing that stopped me from giving this 5 stars was the instructions. There were a few parts left out that are needed to be added for the 2013 mazdaspeed 3. Also, when removing the stock shifter from the shifter cup, you need to push in the tab on the outside and then pull in the other two tabs. instructions say to push all 3. This does not allow the shifter to come loose. All in all, very happy again. will continue to buy more!
I got this and it was always sloppy and it would move around from side to side even when in gear. And then yesterday after just 4 months of being on my car it would not shift into 5th or 6th gear due to a broken piece on the unit... So I took it off and had to put back my stock shifter and everything works like it should now...Very disappointed in this product

I bought the short shifter last week and just got around to install it, but this thing is amazing. When I shift it is smooth and accurate. I love the height of it as well. I installed it under 30 min so I was on the road and ready to go. I definitely recommend this product. Great Job Corksport!!!
This is a must have upgrade for your car. I had the short shift plate, and ran into an issue with Ball and nut coming loose. The install was pretty straight forward with the supplied instructions. And really enjoy the short shifts again. Sloppiness is gone when I shift, and feel more comfortable shifting.
great product... install was simple... shifts feel amazing...
So Far, So Awesome-

I purchased this short shifter shortly after their release in April 2014. And all I have to say is- finally!

Finally there is a reasonable alternative to the $450+ full short shift replacements.

I installed this mid/late-April along with the CS shifter base bushings after receiving my order (Corksport actually called me to inform me my order would be a little late. An actual phone call, go figure. +10 for customer service) and installed the CS base bushings, CS short shifter, and plopped my Razo RA68A (fantastic knob btw) on top. I ended up having the linkage attached to the shifter at the 2nd to shortest setting, and the knob height maybe 1 1/2 - 2cm above the lowest setting.

I gotta say, holy hell. The shifter now feels like what the stock shifter SHOULD have felt like. MUCH shorter and more pleasant to use in both daily and high-throttle circumstances. A long time ago I drove my buddy's Speed MX-5 and was impressed with the shifter, and this model is not too far behind. Slamming through gears is very quick and almost faster than the synchros (or maybe my left foot?) can handle. Do note it really doesn't affect your 2-3 and 4-5 shifts, but the 1-2 and 3-4 shifts are magic.

The only con that I can think of is really that it doesn't have the bend of the original shifter, which leaves it a bit off center and about a cm away from the ebrake during 6th, but I really don't find that to be an issue. I have seen some more OCD forum members complain about that, however about a week or two of use and it hasn't really bothered me.

It's been 8 months now and I have no complaints. Would definitely recommend. Do the shift base bushings and a nice heavy knob at the same time and you won't regret it.
What a fantastic upgrade! Kills the terrible shifting experience when adjusted to your liking. Install wasn't bad at all except for one stupid clip! Seems this car is stuffed full of annoying clips all over. Kicks the crap out of the CS shift plate too as I uninstalled that shortly after except for the reduced weight. A+
What are the chances that this will fit my MZ6 or that you guys make a short shifter for the MZ6?
