I just got one and I love it. It was better than my Old OBX Short Shift..and a lot easier to install than B&N.

The Throws are nice, but it's still not as short as a B&N, as long as u get counterweighted ****..then ure fine.

Highly Recommend it.

nismo does not make a "short shifter"

i believe they call it a "solid shifter"

B&M is much nicer. the gates are close and tight thanks to the helper springs in the housing.

nismo shifter will leave you with the same sloppy stock feeling.

For one you can tell by the price, and most of the Nismo stuff on ebay is fake, for example:

Steering Wheels
Ebay Nismo= $30.00


Real Nismo= not even sure on the price but alot more than $30, paid $100 for mine(older style horn button)


Shifters
Ebay Nismo= $75.00


Real Nismo= $219.00


Oil Caps
Ebay Nismo= $10.00


Real Nismo= $70.00


Not all nismo stuff on ebay is fake though, I got my shift **** on there cheaper than I would've at some other sites, I also got my steering wheel on there for pretty cheap compared to new prices which can go for over $200-300.

yea, most of the nismo stuff on ebay are knock offs.
they prey on nismo ******.
please do not buy products because of the name stamped it.
do your research and get what fits your situation the best.
just a little bit of research (and/or common sense) and even you can tell the difference between the real deal and knock offs.

that's pretty much most NISMO stuff for the s13..if it ain't there and you see it on eBay..u better do a lot of researching. Like I'm still researching if NISMO did make a Seat..

S13 240..where did u get that Steering wheel, I would LOVE to know.

as goes for the B&N Short Shifter...I didn't want to drop my tranny just so I can have it on..I agree that's it's "shorter" than Nismo..but Nismo took 30mins..and that included me drinking a beer.

nismo did make seats. but they're pretty rare. i'll post some pics if i can find it.

i have the b&m ss, and did not have to drop my tranny to install it.

Divisione_240sx: just my $.02, if you're going to put down $200 for a short shifter, get the b&m.
for the nismo, you pay for just the shift rod which will be pivoting in your stock shifter housing.
the b&m completely replaces the shifter housing which includes the helper springs that make all your shifts nice and tight.
in my opinion, b&m is just more for your money.
