a TON of people have bought this, and a TON of people have made threads about it. The overall consensus seems to be that it is just as good as any other short shifter. It is one of the few items on eBay where a no-name product is as good as name brand products. Again, this seems to be the overall feeling about the eBay shifter. I'm sure there will be a select few people who disagree with what I've said.
