Purchased a 2003 Cobra Tuesday, and did a little driving in it yesterday. I forgot how much I hated the location of the shifter. I owned a 2003 back in 04 and remember thinking the same thing when I had that car. I am a shorter guy at around 5'9" and shifting into third gear requires leaning a lot to the right. Why did they have to put the shifter so far forward in the car? Is there anything that helps? I love everything else about the car, just hate the way the shifter feels. I am sure this issue has been covered before, but I couldn't find anything doing a search.
