I got the OBX too.. Bought it off of EBAY for $60, which I think is much better than $150 B&M. It was advertised for a Ford Focus, but people here said it would fit ours too, and it did. Still gotta figure out how to get the centering spring to work right. Pushing left is too stiff for me.
dude, the shifter was 60, 10 shipping... it is freaking awesome.... the centering spring, i saw that... what i did was just bent the bracket where it connects to the shifter, dropped in the new one, and bent it back... worked fine, didnt have to replace anything!!! didnt break anything either.... I love the way it feels now, same things as B&M, although less than half the price off eBay... search OBX Focus on ebay.... Install took about 30mins
Wait, this thing is $70 shipped and is just a good, well made as the B&M shifter?
Is it much shorter?
Did you cut the shaft also?
Is it strong or does it flex in you hand?
Most importantly, is it nice looking or can the nob be replaced?
Here There is a recent auction for the shifter. It fit right into my 00 Cougar.. works with the stock shift knob and everything... If you have any more ?'s reply...
