Perfect, thank you. Yes already running the ZHP knob.

Will he reach out to me or how do I coordinate specifics with him?

Yeah the AS website is archaic. He's good with e-mails though, contact him there. I was running the 30% SSK on my last M3, a significant improvement over stock. Although the new movement seems to be with the RTD or CAE shifters. Would like to hear opinion of someone who went from AS to one of the ultra tall shifters.

Spoke to Rob, sounds like the 25% autocross is the one that would be best for me. Anyone have experience with this compared to the 20/30% ultras?

Any input appreciated. Going to pull the trigger today.

E60 M5 shifter with a stock E46 M3 knob is the way I like it.
Just the right throw length and the least expensive option.

I believe the E60 "short" version was from the 545i
Part# 25117546373

I had it over a year now and the difference is very satisfying. Still have the BMW slop (requires more updating and more parts to lock down) but the throws feel just natural. It should have been this from factory.
Original broomstick always felt like it moved a centimeter more than it needed to. This one just seems to get the throw distance right

Here is a thread I referenced: http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=591389

I am in the process of looking through these for my smg to 6 speed conversion. I have the ecs kit ordered, but am considering the RTD shifter instead for ease of the conversion.. Currently have an email into him asking about shift lever legnth... I do not like the idea of a super tall shifter at all. Hoping there is a solution they offer

After my communication with Ronald at Auto Solutions and what Iím looking for, sounds like his kits would be a good fit for you as well. Iíll keep you posted on the feel post install

Got my auto solutions shifter installed and it is simply epic. I went with his auto cross kit and it is amazing. Everyone at the shop was asking about it. Highly recommend this route, I didnít want a tall shifter either. This still uses my low zcp weighted shift knob

Auto Solutions is a MUST have for this car. If I bought another M3, that would be my first mod.
