I purchased this shifter one week after installing another after market shifter in my Mustang. I will not name the other shifter but lets just say they make a lot of high quality parts for Mustangs. Anyway, the other shifter had too much road noise and was too notchy. Almost to the point that it had me thinking something was wrong with my transmission. I have owned a couple other shifters in the past and knew what to expect but this was beyond acceptable. I immediately bought this Barton and haven't looked back. The construction is solid, high craftsmanship, and it shifts so much better. The road noise is gone and it shifts like butter now. A friend of mine went out and bought one also for his Shelby GT500. I highly recommend Barton.
