Hey guys.

I'm running out of ideas on what to upgrade on my fn2 so am fancying the acuity shifter base bushings to go under the gear stick.

Are they a complete waste of 30 quid, or do they actually make the shift feel any better?

I've already got a genuine skunk 2 knob.

Yes - A nice marginal improvement in shifting feel.

I'd suggest their gear cable bushings (The ones that go on the transmission itself) - They're a revelation!
Yeh I was looking at the ktuned ones for the gearbox end which have a spherical bearing rather than a bushing .

Will the base bushings make any difference on their own or do I need to do the box end too?

The base bushings do also have an effect. In my case I did the box first, so it was less noticeable than a change from stock, however, veehexx did base bushings first and reported a big change from stock.

It'll certainly reduce play.

The ktuned are essentially the same as the acuity, with a spherical bearing, though they do come out slightly cheaper.

Cheers mate.

Where did you find them cheaper than ktuned? Tegiwa do the ktuned ones for 50 quid, but the acuity ones are 70.

I was typing my thoughts :p

The Ktuned are the cheaper option. Personally, Given my experience with Acuity products, I'd pay the premium (They've always had perfect fitment etc.) - That being said, there's not much to go wrong (one would hope) with a bushing.
