2004 STi

Default my sti shifter notchier and stiffer than others

since the day i got my 04 my shifter has been stiff and really notchy. I didn't remember it feeling like this when i test drove a WRX some time ago. So when i picked up my plates the other day at the dealer, I sat on the car in the showe room and it seem like it shifted so much better than mine. Sure enough I looked at the window sticker and it said it had the STi short shifter. I have a little over 700 miles on my WRX. What should i do? Should i suck it up and deal with some notchiness, or should i go to the dealer? do you think the dealer would look at me and start laughing? or is there something i can do myself to fix the problem (maybe some grease or loosening/tightning a bolt). Thanks...

^^ Bump.

My STi shifter is exactly the same, and it's gotten worse. I have almost 17K miles on it, and I would love to make it shift nice and smooth like it used to when it was new.

The lever pivot bolt may be too tight, this will cause stiff shifting.
