I did buy one just yet to install it.. The thing is a piece of art!

The machining/quality looks awesome on these... Curious to see how yours turns out. The height just screams GYMKHANA to me.

<edit> I just remembered you have to notch & cut out the ashtray too....

no way for a DD on this.

Can't find any real info on this in 30 seconds of searching ...
Does it actually mimic the up-down shifting of a sequential, or maintains the "H" pattern?

Might be more for looks and just to 'change it up'.

Pretty sure it keeps the H pattern, look on the Facebook at the old group buy there's some good info in there

full length and closer to the steering wheel reduces the amount of time a hand is off the wheel when racing.
the medium length ones might have a sales pitch on shift quality.
