Ive got both shifters. My car came with a trd unit and i had a C’s one spare. I changed it over to see the difference and havent looked back. The C’s is shorter and sits a little higher too. I also combined the two by using the solid mounts on the C’s unit.
Maybe i should switch back over in the future to see if my opinion still stands…
Unpopular opinion here, but in comparison to other makes and models of cars around World in the 90's ( mainly subaru's ) Compared to the starlet's, The stock Shifter is amazingly good,Very direct and notchy, i do not imagine much more improvement could be had, apart from new OE parts,
But then again its unlikely i would attempt a short shifter, on my starlet atleast.
