Have to admit, I love using a gated shifter. Feels so much better than standard shifters. I like not having to press a button and the modes work perfect together.

I notice newer cars are going away from them though

What car are you referring to? When you say gated shifter, my mind immediately goes to Ferrari.

Came in expecting "real" gated shifters or ones that people have made. Leaving with manual smugness still intact.

Real men don't need a guide to help them shift.

Not used for shifting. Helps prevent shifting into reverse and vice versa

Straight shift auto's won't allow to shift into reverse when the car is moving forward.
