New Drake Auto Shifter Installed

I read the cosmetic and lighting forum the most so thought I would post here. Anyone thinking of getting the new Drake Auto shifter pull the trigger NOW!! The new shifter is a superb feel in the hand and very solid. I have been looking forward to this mod since seeing the concept. Should come standard from factory. At $99 bucks its a no brainer. I paid over $300 for a similar type product when owning an Audi TT and this feels just as nice. It literally took less than 5 min to install. Put the shifter in Neutral, remove old shifter (held in place by one 20 torx screw) and replace with Drake. That simple. The last photo shows the trigger mechanism some have been asking to see.


Only thing to note....Since a steel type product will take on cold or heat what ever climate your from.

Here are some photos which does not due justice enjoy

You wont regret!! The ball of the shifter is approx same size as the OEM shifter head so fits very nicely in hand. Much more of a solid feel though!

I've had mine for about 6 months or so now. I can't agree more. It's awesome! Looks great and it's not $300...lol. It does get super cold in the mornings when I go to work though.

I like mine except for very hot or colds days. In 90 degree weather it burns your hands in the winter it freeze your hand.

For those that want color instead of brushed, I am sure any reputable powder coater can powder coat this for next to nothing. I have been on the fence on this one as the vendor I am going to buy it from did not have any good pics of it and the trigger. My wallet is now going to be a little lighter.....

And, the powdercoating may give a little relief on the heat/cold as well.
