Thumbs up B&M Sport Shifter '08 Accent GS

This is a great simple modification that I completed in 1 hour. Simple and easy to follow instructions. The only thing I deviated from, was using the Dremel tool. I used a larger cut off wheel instead and was careful only to slightly nick into the plastic housing a bit while cutting off the retainer enough to remove it from the pin. Everything needed is included in the kit, including loc-tite and grease.

After installation, I tested out the shifer. The throws are shorter and the shifter goes directly to the next higher gear with ease. This makes for much faster gear changes.

For those of you that like to keep the look of your car stock, this mod does just that. You reinstall your stock shifter knob on-top and car hardly tell that anything has changed at all. Your ease of driving will though.

For 1 hour of your time and $100, this is a must do mod!

The shifts are so much better. I'm waiting on my Redline MT-85 to put in it now and see if it flows even more effortlessly.
