Can't decide on a short-shifter...help?

Hi guys...I want to get a short-shifter for my 335 but can't figure out which one. I have black leather interior with aluminum trim, and ideally I want something that matches the aluminum trim. I actually really like the look of the stock shifter, except for the fact that it's too big. I was looking at this (http://www.mileoneparts.com/partloca...catalogid=4462) but I'm not really sure how much shorter it's going to be...the actual knob looks shorter but it also looks like the boot comes up higher than the stock.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I think this would look best with aluminum trim...

Forgot to say... the one you reference is about an inch and half shorter, and the boot rises up to virtually the same level, so yes it is much shorter and makes a huge difference IMO

You wont regret it.... I actually got the M peforated leather short shifter, which I think is the same size, but it is like driving with a new gearbox! Good luck, enjoy!

You tried contacting Evan or Jason from Tischer?
I think it's the same company. They are really good replying pms, emails or just posts.
