You must be a terrible driver, or got a bad unit.

This shifter + bracket combo cleaned my shifts up so much that I recommend this to everyone as a first mod if they ask.

This was by far my favorite mod, I would honestly put it over my supercharger. It gives you piece of mind, and confidence in your shifts.

I also agree that you should install it yourself unless you are either very uncoordinated, never turned a wrench in your life, or so rich that you dont mind wasting money. The install took me about 1 1/2 hours, and I did it in the driveway on ramps.
