The OEM piece is plastic and can flex over time causing the gear changes to be less precise. It's shouldn't rattle though. If you hear that you need to diagnose the problem.

The Car Garage Amis replacement is metal.

With your car being so new, can you feel the difference with the metal collar?
Can you post a link where you bought it please?
HUGE fan of your car

Thanks for the kind words. Here's the website: http://www.nengun.com/car-garage-ami...0-shift-collar

You can feel the difference even given the low miles on my car. But I think a high mileage car would offer a noticeable difference. The gears engage easier with a little less effort especially at high revs. The notchy feeling is less noticeable. Since the collar is metal, it will more likely retain a more consistent feel over time. The shifts just seem more crisp.

Got a couple of small things done. Spoon covers for the bay and then did a wire loom wrap on Battery Tender Jr. clips and routed then around fuse box with a clip to the body. All in an effort to make it look OEM. Plus got a free replacement for my CF Braille Battery compliments of Jegs.

Finally got a new HU installed. Mainly I wanted something that had BT, HD radio, USB options, and color variability match. This unit has it all. It makes the OEM speakers sound so much better. Now I have to fine tune sound options and learn the DCI functions when playing different sources. The only thing I need to get working is the Mute function with the DCI. I installed the BT mic behind the steering for best possible sound. It works well with top on and windows up.

Kenwood Excelon KDC 998 with Modifry DCI. Purchased HU from Amazon. Good price.

Actually I couldn't get it to work cause there's no soft top harness and wires in the CR so I couldn't tap into the soft top black and white wire per the instructions. Something I didn't think about until I got into the installation.

Install looks good, looking forward to using it next weekend
