I wouldn't say there was anything "wrong" w OEM short shifter. I thought it sat a bit high even with the arm rest extender. I've had the car about a year and I've mis-shifted a handful of times but it's probably more my fault than anything. The Cobb one is adjustable, so I lowered it. I also got the front and rear bushings so it there's less wiggle room in the shifter and feels firmer. I've heard you can get the Cobb bushings to use w the OEM short shifter and that will get rid of the "looseness". If you like the height of the OEM short shifter but want to get rid of the slop, that's an easy upgrade.
