There's a lot of threads in these if you wouldn't mind using the search function. That being said, most everybody recommends the MGW shifter. I have the Steeda Tri-Ax and I like it a lot more than my old Pro 5.0

Is there anyone who as used both the steeda and the mgw? I have used the steeda tri-ax on a few different cars and its definatly better than the stock shifter. Just wondering if the mgw is actually better than the tri-ax?

I had a Tri-Ax before my MGW. it was nice and I really liked it, but it was too rattly and cheap-feeling for me. Had I never driven an MGW car, I would love the Tri-Ax because the only really downside is how cheap it feels compared to the MGW.

Here is some STS information from my blog that might help you decide (to get the MGW)...

I switched from a stock shifter to a mgw and it was like night and day. 100 times better. Only thing I've noticed sometimes it takes a few tries to get it in reverse
