Looks interesting but somewhat bulky for efforts to keep the cars' stock/OEM look.
Is this a sequential shifter ala Cartronic type?

Gavin at auto quest sells a comparable product, but is much more factory looking. Not cheap though. I think it's around 6k installed or something like that.

Never mind. Gavin's is a sequential. I just found the english button on the website.

This thing looks like it would be around $2k after shipping and an install. Not sure if it would be worth it to me.

Not worth it unless you like the look of a sequential shifter without having the functionality. This piece is a nice looking short shift kit that changes nothing but the length of the throw. Looks like a very nice piece though!

it also looks to raise the position of the shift **** -- closer to the steering wheel which I believe is advantageous

I will.

Then, if you like it, I can buy it from you at half price in a few months

I agree, thats why the sequential are so tall, less time the hand has to travel off the wheel, the better IMO

Correct answer for a sequential. Increasing only the height for an H-pattern is not advantageous.

yep - you are right... although I am not familiar enough with shifters to know if all that was done on this example was height... it appears that there may be some more changes in play other than hieght alone

Yup I agree with you on other changes at play but I don't think it is worth the extra coin to buy something like this to put the shifter closer to the steering wheel. I wouldn't mind seeing one at some point but I wouldn't want to be the one paying that kind of price to find out if it works better or not on my street car.

I would only do this for a race/track car..... I was also looking at the CMS unit as well.
