I think B&M do one for the IS200 so should be the same. I drove a friends mirage mivec with one and it was seriously close on the gears. Lovely gob just needing a flick of the wrist

I've got a TRD fitted in mine much better, takes a lot of travel out of gear changes,
it seemed miles in distance between 1st and 5th and some times found myself hunting for gears when I 1st got my RS

a short sifter was 1 of my 1st mod, and I really like it ,
gear stick feels a lot firmer now and every movement is much more positive

there stiffer than the standard gear stick and the B&M shifter is stiffer still from what I've heard

if you like to drive your car and don't want to spend loads of time floating about between gear changes get 1

If you get a sticker with the shifter might give you an extra 15bhp at the wheels :lol: :lol: :lol:
