Anyone put a fidanza in their celi? Or am I the only one? I put it in about two weeks ago. It was really stiff at first, but after a 1823 mile road trip, its pretty smooth now. I'm gonna check it this weekend and re-grease the ball joints on it. Shorter throws, and I stick my shifts every time. So far, I like it. Its cheaper too. ~$60 + shipping.
Don't forget the TRD shifter. I love mine, it's plenty short if you don't want to sacrifice your easy slide-into-gear stock feel. The throws are super short, but it feels like stock when sliding into gear.

here let my break it down B&M = shorter than stock, shortest throw TRD = shorter than stock, stock feel but shorter throw TWM = shortest, stiff and some say its hard like shit to get to reverse. imo i would go for ether B&M or TRD if you want shorter shift, but if you want looks go for TWM
Both MAY increase misshifts, TWM will be more of a probability. I can see how TWM may be uncomfortable for daily driving. I have B&M on my daily driver. Only have good things to say. Plus...easy install.
You do the math.

The fidanza short shifter came with everything I needed. Bushings, the shifter, and a knob (which I kept the origional leather one). I installed it in about 30 min. It didn't come with instructions, but it is pretty easy to figure out. I'll try to post pics when I can.
Is there really a difference between the '02 and the '00 shifters or right- and left-hand drive cars? TWM's webpage only has '02+ and right-hand-drive for the '00-'02. I guess in that case I'd have to go with the B&M
