I believe the only place to buy is directly from MGW.

The install is a PITA, took about 3 hours, but the results are well worth it!
Buy direct from MGW.

Mike,

Only MGW sells it. If you call them, you can speak directly to the designer. I have seen one of these in person with the race knob option. It is much smaller than it looks online. The shifter is tight. It has a much more pronounced shifting action compared to stock. I just had this installed on my vehicle. I haven't driven it yet though.

I have a MGW shifter and love it. The only hard part of the install is the passenger side retaining pin. It's just tight fit very close to the tunnel.

Great shifter! Not that bad to install as long as you have a hoist.

Ditto...got mine installed in just less than 2 hours using a hoist. Can't imagine how difficult it would be on ramps....

I helped fellow member Kilo-9 (Chris) install his a few weeks ago,fortunately he has a lift,I think that is a must,I couldn't imagine trying to do it on ramps.
The hardest part of the install for us was the re-installation of the bushings,you must remove them from the factory shifter and install them into the MGW shifters linkages.
It also helps to have a buddy give you a hand (This was me! ) during the shifter install process.
