Sub'd! Been eyeing one of these once I complete all the other necessary stuff on my car. In the meantime my MKAH extended knob has been doing its job so far.

Have you driven a car with one of these installed?

I've seen complaints with the notchiness.

CAE is super nice, but seems like a lot of money for a shifter but that's my opinion.

Looking forward to the next video!

Not to derail the thread (I don't think they're a sponsor here) but you could check out the RTD shifter. It's essentially a CAE but half the cost and the owner explained how some of the mechanical bits are even better quality, I forget the details.

I have the race height shifter in my track car and I love it. Luckily I was able to install it while the car up on a lift and the exhaust/driveshaft were out.

Best shifter for the M6. Worth every penny, not sure I would DD it. Installed this unit on my Track car and everyone that drives it loves it including me.
