You can get cheapo shifters from Repco and the likes, you can get more rounded T-bars which are always painted in cheapo carbon fibre look desing. I had one of these on my dads Falcon but I painted it the same colour of the car and it looked pretty shmick. I never got a photo of it before it broke.
You can also get the shifters that are just a bigger cylinder that sits over the gear lever and have the button on top.
I reckon the factory shifters off later model falcons look alot better than the aftermarket ones which are just cheap and nasty with plastic parts that wear.

You can get one for $30-50 from repco etc. I had a carbon fibre looking one (not the t-bar style) which had the button on top. All i had to do was tighten the grub screws in the side if it and it was fine. Use threadlock though as the grub screws can come loose easily.
I prefer the EF/EL shifter to the EA/EB/ED shifter compared to aftermarket automatic shifters, I suppose that's another pro to the manual people, decent aftermarket shifters. But the shift seems smoother and the button is a lot easier to push in. Dad drove my EB and liked the new shifter so much he made me hunt down another one for his EA! But you do need the EF/EL rod, the EA/EB/ED one is just short by about an 1inch. Unless you want to extend it yourself?
