Angry AOD shifter blocks cd insert/romoval

when I had the cd player in the 5spd Stang, there was no problem because the shifter was shorter and a little further out.
With the AOD, the shifter handle is right in the freakin' way. It's impossible to get a cd in/out with it in park. I have to at least move it to the neutral position(cd player also has the fold down face).
ANybody else have this annoying problem?

You can move the radio up, swap locations with the heat/ac controls.
Any custom shop should be able to do this. Might be $$$ but well worth it IMHO.
