Well I like it. It feels good and is fun to play with. I still think the feel of leather is superior though. After holding onto the metal gear shift for a while your hand starts to get somewhat "oily" and "sweaty". It becomes annoying only after you have been really holding onto the thing for along time. I also keep the car very cool and have relatively dry hands. I am contemplating making a leather strip that goes around it. But that seems to negate the whole point of the shift lever.

So my final opinions are:

Is it cool? Yes
Is it worth soending $$$ on? Yes (if you like the looks and the shortened throw)
Is it worth $175? I REALLY don't think so.
