This sounds like a great option if that $85 is a $tealer price. Can you identify exactly which Z4 parts are needed from www.realoem.com?

Just go at the stealer and buy shifter kit. It's the shifter and a small box with all the component you need.

(bmw of toronto) went to bmw of mississauga and they said the same thing!! which dealer did u go to and got it for $85? seriously i want to buy one and if i get it for that price its a hell of alot cheaper than b&m uuc etc....

If you get the OEM short shifter just make sure you buy aftermarket delrin bushings for the carrier itself bc after time you will get alot of slop when you shift.
