Ah, thanks for the info. As was mentioned above, I didn't know to look elsewhere for the MGW. Maybe I'll get mine a little sooner than later, by using Paypal. Stripes, painting and appearance mods are eating into my Semolian supply at present.

After signing up for Paypal. I was required to separately sign up for BillMeLater afterward, allowing me to make payments online. In doing that, I chose to separately sign up, and later verify authenticity through 2 account debits, to link my credit union account. Otherwise, I'd have to make payments by mail. Paypal didn't automatically sign me up for BillMeLater too, as it's a subsidiary of Paypal. In your case, I'd question it too. If you didn't specifically sign up for BillMeLater, you shouldn't be responsible for that payment. Sounds like they made a mistake and are now trying to get you to cover it.

This is what I think happened. It was a few years ago and I've sent them countless messages. They called me once, but I didn't get anywhere with them so I just hung up. Sucks.

Shifter installed today...took 2 hours. Had to get used to 1st to 2nd shift. Maybe i have to adjust it. But other than that its night and day from stocker. Very positive crisp shifts. I used street bushing should i have used the track one? Anyone try both yet? Any difference?

Nice! I adjusted mine as well. The first day I used my baby after the install, it feels like I keep hitting my shoulder at the door jamb in going through the door in 1st and 2nd. Reverse did not lock-up as well. After adjustment, everything is a snap. Shifting is a bliss. Feels like the first time again. Lol

You have loosen the jam nut of the reverse lock-out pin. There is a hole in the pin, use small allen wrench or precision screw driver that will fit the hole. Turn the pin counter clockwise, then tighten the jam nut when 1st and 2nd feels right and pin locks out correctly at reverse.

Whats the difference between the street and track bushings?
As in is it okay to use street for track sometimes or use track for daily driving?
Thanks.

They are just made of different materials that the two posts from the shifter connect to. The track is harder than the street and will produce a little more NVH. It is fine to use either one For DD I chose the street when I did the install just because I wasn't sure how much more noise the track bushing would produce, and I didn't want to have to get back under there and swap it out if it was loud.

I used the street bushing. The track version is really hard and produces more noise. The street bushing will be fine for occasional track use, the track bushing is designed for track only cars. Hope that helps

Have installed two of these shifters. Both needed one full turn of adjustment (counter clockwise). Made all the difference in the world. Easy to do. Just pop of the console, & you can slide the inner boot down to make the adjustment. 10 minutes, tops.

It completely depends in their manufacturing times. It could be 4 days it could be 6 weeks. Your best bet is to call and ask. I got mine I'm 3 weeks from the date I ordered.

Some guys lucked out, I put my order in 3 days ago... Just gonna wait patiently, I already have the Barton with the 2 post which shifts nice, I just wanna get rid of the drivetrain noise... and the updated video MGW made really shows the new upgrades and the awesomeness of the product and very detailed installation process which in the past deterred a bit from getting it in the first place cuz I was a bit intimidated which the process.
