I agree. I misread the previous posts with performance SW as "performance software", hence my question about which SW. With all deference to those who have installed the performance wheel, I don't like the look of it, I prefer the standard wheel. In addition, the installation looks like a full days work for a pro, more if you are an amateur tinkerer. And... it does cost a $1000 bucks.

I have found two shift lights that look like winners and have made some paper tube models to try and figure out where to mount them. Right now I am leaning toward an A-pillar mount. But there are options within the tech screen recess, on top of the dash between the humps and also within the instrument cluster on the right side. I am also considering a single super bright LED mounted so it's completely out of sight when unlit. The solutions cost between $100-$150 and should be able to be installed in a couple of hours. It'll probably still take me some time to get around to it, but I'll post my install once I have it done.

Here are the shift lights I have been looking at:

Or this one with an external lamp for a more stealthy install:
