  12. Review: Factory OEM vs SSK OEM vs GT3 shifter

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    So I went from OEM to OEM SSK to GT3 shifters since the August. OEM - Little sloppy and vague, but smooth. Little rubbery as well. Had it for the first month of ownership, and was actually fine with it, but decided to try SSK anyway. OEM SS - firm and short, but too notchy. Notchy bothers me...
