  • 2008 shifter ideas for right arm movement limitations

    A lady I know has a 2008 convertible with a 6 speed manual. She was in a actident about a year ago and messed up her right shoulder.

    She tells me she's still having problems shifting because of her shoulder and she's not driving the car much. I thought I'd do a little reseach to see if there was a better/easier solution for making the shifing easier for her.

    I see B&M and Hurst make a short throw shifter and from I can find out, it does make the shifting experience easier.

    Has anyone used/installed one of these shifters, what are your thoughts?

    Any other ideas for an easier shifting experience?

    I did ask if she was wiling to sell/trade for something with an A/T, but that is out of the quesiton I'm told. I think we all can relate to that when we have something we just don't want to part with no matter what.

    Cheers, PB

    I installed short shifters in my C5 and C6 Corvettes (not those brands but outstanding ones). Both resulted in a greater force needed to make the gear changes due to the shorter throw. The shorter throw makes it quicker but not easier, and imo makes it harder. Sorry but I doubt your idea is going to work for your friend.

        I put an MGW short throw shifter in my C7, and my experience echoes John's.
