There are pics, pricing, and ordering information in the thread. I can help answer any questions you may have, and there are several 2001+ Elantra/Elantra GT shifters in stock ready to go.

Okay, please, everyone with a 2001-2002 Elantra who installed B&M short shifter post your opinions here. Is it worth paying over $100 for it? Was it easy to install? Any pictures? The pictures Reid posted at Tiburon forum do not show up.

The whole install is done from inside the car. Basically you remove the shift knob (unscrew),remove the shift console cover. Now with the shift tower exposed disconnect the two cables,remove a push-nut and a pin. Now you can open the top of the shift tower and lift out the stick. Install new stick after lubing it and reassemble. Tools required...needle nose, flat tipped screwdriver, hammer and an 8mm punch.

Is it worth over $100, hell yeah! When you feel the difference in shift feel you wont ask that. Put it this way...in a manual transmission car your right hand is using the shift lever a large majority of the time. It pays to improve that part of the driving experience.

The result is a shifter with solid feel that has shorter throws and is a joy to use. The funny thing is that the Elantra transmission seems to have no problem keeping up with this thing. Single best mod I could have done.
