Greetings,
went to the dealer to buy my new 03 Cobra and my wife, who is an avid sports car nut, complained that the shifter was simply out of reach. Guys, this is a serious problem. We can't justify spending $32K on a car that she will not enjoy. I'm desperate!
Anybody make a shifter that relocates it aft? Thanks Larry

Not a problem, MGW (one of our supporting vendors) makes a nice handle to move it back closer to the driver. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks Brian! Does the shifter also clean up the pattern like the ripper shifter that i am most familiar with or is it just the handle?
If I can solve this one issue, it's a go tomorrow morning! Larry

Lisa, did you find the reach to the shifter uncomfortable as well? If so, have you looked at any solutions? Thanks! Larry

Yes, I was referring the handle only. If you want to "clean up the pattern" you will still need the aftermarket shifter assy. The MGW handle will work with that also. Good luck with the new car. :thumbsup:

Thanks all! Went and drove it again. They have agreed to sell it to me on the x plan at $32,700 or they have a black 03 with 3k miles for $29,500. I am OK with 3k miles but am unsure about black in vegas. Must decide quick. larry

So? Which did you get???

BTW, I'm a short woman, and I, also, have the out of reach shifter problem - especially going into the odd #'d gears. Since I drive this car all the time, we either need to change it out or I have to get "go-go Gadget arms"!!!! ;) :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :thumbsup: :cool:

I am pretty short ( no comments form the peanut gallery now...);) It is not too bad for me ( since I sit sooooo close). As long as I can reach the pedals i don't have problems.:thumbsup:
