Installed the MGW on Tuesday as planned! Took 2 hrs with a lift. Only hang up was getting the old shifter out because of a tab that held the read bracket was a mm to long. Throw is set at 5 and is super short! I couldn't imagine going any shorter than 5 honestly but, some do it. First few drives were very notchy but, it has loosen up since and has made my driving experience much more pleasurable. There is a learning curve with this shirt shifter since 4th gear is where 2nd use to be
For anyone thinking about getting the MGW short shifter for their S197 pull the trigger you wont be dissapointed!
