Mine sucked. 1>3 gate was so narrow it was hit or miss every time I shifted to 3rd. Almost caused a wreck so I sent it back to AM. I loved the short throw but wasn't worth the hassle. The bracket was very noisy as well and no better than a ES shift bushing IMO.
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.
