450es foot shifter

Anyone else see these on ebay? I am thinking about getting one that way when my electric shift craps out from time to time I dont have to get the factory one out and mess with it.

Let me know what you think of these. Good or bad idea?


Mine seems to work most of the time but once in a while it will not do anything with the buttons until I shut it down and restart it. Not sure what that means but seems to work so far.

Seems kinda chincy to me. The only thing on it worth any value is the part that was machined. The rest of it looks like fragile, bendable, mild carbon flat bar.

Its not exactly for that reason but when you put it that way it sure does seem like alot of work.
