Corvette C5 Shifters are a matter of personal preference. A quick search on the internet shows that Corvette owners have personal preferences for how their shifter should feel. In fact, you probably have your own preferences and the best guess is that you currently do not like the feel of your current one if you are looking for a Corvette C5 shifter. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. We have mentioned many times that it is your car and it is very likely your dream car. You should have it set up exactly how you want it to be set up and it should feel exactly how you want it to feel. Sure, you get a Corvette to impress people but ultimately it is yours to enjoy. You should get things to the way you like it first and foremost because you can always upgrade the look of the car.
A thing that you must consider when buying a Corvette C5 shifter is if the knob is going to fit the shifter. You have to be careful here because not all knobs will fit all shifters. You will have to research thoroughly what shifter you need or what knob you need to fit the shifter you currently have or you might be out of luck altogether. Too many people have made the mistake of thinking that the shifters are universal and some fo them are not. You do not want to be any of these people and you want to make sure that you know what you buying before you buy it.
You should also consider if the shifter will actually fit the vehicle in a way that will not damage the other pieces around the product. Even though and the item is made for a particular car or vehicle does not mean that it is not known for damaging the vehicle is was made for in the beginning. It is the sad truth about some aftermarket companies. They do not have the same standards as OEM companies, therefore, they may not have the same efficacy because they are not made up to the vehicle manufacturer's standards. You have to make the decision if you are willing to risk it. You could also do the research to make sure it is not going to damage your car.
Upgrading your shifter is a good thing to do. It is your dream car and it should be treated as such. You should make the call about what type of knob you want and what type of shifter. Make sure that you check to see if the knob and the shifter are actually compatible with each other because there is nothing worse than buying a product and not being able to use it. You must also make a careful choice between buying OEM or aftermarket parts. Just remember that the choice to buy from an aftermarket manufacturer requires you to do your research to make sure that you are getting a part that, or Corvette C5 shifter, that will work in your car and not damage it.
