So I just received a Blox dual bend short shifter, the shifter is bent toward the passenger side of the car, so the shift knob is angled away from the driver.

I have had many shifters over the years for many cars, from B&M, Hurst, etc, all of them are bent toward the driver side for good ergonomics, if they are bent to the side at all.

The parts dealer is claiming Blox told them this is normal. This sounds like BS or sh't design to me, what say you?

Buying an integra shifter was the original plan, but they are scarce. I'm gonna return the Blox, I imagine the dealer's denial is so they can try for their 25% restocking fee.

Dealer now claiming he's checked every shifter in stock of differing brands and says they are all bent to the right toward the passenger, Skunk2, B&M, etc. Anyone with any of these shifters who can back up this claim? The dual bend B&M I have isn't bent toward the passenger.

My old-school b&m single bend is angled very slightly left, where many others with the same part # were only bent slightly back. It wouldn't surprise me if they were accidentally shipped right hand drive ones though, stuff been stupid like that a lot recently, picked up an expansion valve and it was clocked for right hand drive, as were the next 11 they ordered for me, 12th time was the charm though.
