    most "car places" (like autobarn, supercheap etc..) will have them, or can get them....rocket industries is the importer for australia i think, you could always just order straight from them too.

    i have been thinking about getting a b&m shifter but unsure if they will suit the newer (ie newer than vl) commodore interior.

    anyone got pics of a pro ratchet, quicksilver or megashifter in a VR/VS

    i thought about putting a ratchet style in my vs. i wasnt happy with the way that the finish would look though. i hear that all b&m shifters can be used on 3 or 4 speeds trans, just a matter of removing a rubber stop or something.
    try this link

    yeh id agree look frigen smick. propbably worth lookin at a goos stall converter befor you head down b&m shifter way. also what everi's preference one b&m shifters i personaly think the Quciksilver model looks best closely followed by the Pro Rachet. not sure if they differ much in usability tho??

    would you say youd prefer a B&M over a manual?? and what advantages/disadvantages of them both. can you just drive a B&M like a normal auto if you want??
