imho, i feel that it's a little odd for Rogue to say something like that.

first gear requires me to extend my arm out a little too much for my liking (a little too far and too low, cos i'm a RHD) so a longer lever would require me to extend my arm out even more.

a shorter lever and/or knob would almost certainly reduce the reach/extension since a longer lever and/or knob would also increase the distance required for the top of the knob to travel, and i'm not sure if this is a good thing...

i agree that the stock shifter sits a little too low, but unless the entire centre consol/tunnel area can be raised (similar to the old Toyota MR2 which had a great height and feel), we're stuck with it.

thanks for the info and heads up.

cheers
You didn't speak to the throw length issue. Do you feel it's sufficiently "short"? Also, some have complained of the console interfering with shift action. Do you notice that?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I find the lever too short to rest my arm on the center console, I have my arm going over the handbrake area...

I would say the stock lever is definitely sufficiently short.

I tried to just read along and enjoy and refrain from posting since I am not and will not be able to be a member. After 6+ pages of really funny posts I just could not resist one small comment. I absolutely will not interfere, post about other transmissions, be rude, etc. here in this thread. Cheers.

I'd try it with the ///M WAY smaller, like roughly 2x the size of the CLUB letters. Just my opinion....

Fixed proportions a bit. The letters needed to be larger.

Nice, but would be great if it were in perspective, like you were looking down at the top of your shift knob.
