Short shifters..



Hey guys.. so lately i've been on a modding spree...

lol i can't stop spending in the last 2 weeks i purchased.
new headers
3.38 diff
m3 front bumper and trunk lip..

lol now i'm after a short shifter.
i have no idea really about these.

Which company makes a good shifter?
is there anything i should keep in mind?
any thing i should i avoid.....

i'm pretty much looking for feed back from the guys who purchased these??
or anyone whos has a good knowledge about these as i know pretty much nothing..

Thanks

I have an E36 1992 318is and I have a B&M in it and I love it. I find that it is really short, notchy but not hard to get in gear. I have had this for about 4 years and in two cars and it is great. I would imagine that they make an application for the E46 as well. They are a little expensive compaired to others but I think worth it.

i'm very happy with my rogue octane, but i haven't driven any of the other kits so i can't really compare...

Save your money. I'm using a MZ3 shifter lever with brand new bushings all around. Great, short, precise throws and it only costs about 140 in parts! I would recommend a DSSR though to remove the side-to-side play.
