I hear a lot of traffic, (positive comments) these days about the shifter made by MGW. Anybody currently using this item on their car?

No, and if I didn't have a B&M, I would definitely give MGW's a try.

Hey Brent , I have that shifter . After going through a B&M , Hurst and a custom I made , I think its by far the best shifter around.

Hi Manny, would you be able explain what makes the MGW better than the B&M or why you like it in general? I know that the shifts feel solid with the B&M, but the effort to shift is excessive. Is it easier to shift with the MGW? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

The MGW has a more postive ingagement of the gears . It does have a heavey throw as well . This difference is that as the shifter warms up the throw's become easier . So when its cold it's stiffer , and as it warms up feels postive and not as stiff .No other shifter works like the MGW .

UPDATE - I was able to track down a picture of the beast:




This shifter looks like something that belongs on the space shuttle. :D

Pulled the trigger on the shifter this morning - the lady answering the phones at MGW was very pleasant and easy to deal with. :driving:
