not true, I had a Ebay shifter and I had to modify it to make it a real short shifter, just because the shifter is shorter than the stock one does not mean the shifts are shorter B&M is a true short shifter also ARK and TWM. the hyunday accent 00-05 has the same shifter box as the XD and XD2I have the Ralco RZ shifter and its great. Easy to install and worth the price. Cheaper than both the B&M and the TWM by a large margin and works just as well.
the best thing to do if you want a cheap shifter, they have a set allen screw on the side of the big ball, loose the screw and press the shifter downwards to gain the desired length and it will work perfectlyIlanpro are you sure they have the same shifter box because of yeah I'm getting this one for my XD.
