Th e giant amount of threaded rod extending downward from the shifter stalk scares the shit out of me.
That is a failure point waiting to happen.
Spend a little more and get AKG or Bimmerworld.

You didn't realize that once the illest/stance crowd discovered the e30?

For the reviews I've read on these on Facebook, nobody seems to think they're without flaw, but for the price it seems to be a good purchase if you're looking for this style shifter vs the CAE @ $600+

This shifter is "not" like the CAE, two completely different approaches.
This shifter is much more like a cheap Bimmerworld / AKG knock off which is basically a knockoff of the original E30M3 DTM shifter with some modern updates.

The CAE (and its offshoots) with its elevated shift tower, altered pivot different geometry and adjustable preload springs is a completely different animal.

These things can only be compared to the other plate mounted ones which are much better designed without that long threaded rod just waiting to break.
