Default Autosolutions short shift kit Group Buy

Over in the E46 forum, we have an active thread for a group buy on the AutoSolutions short shift kit. Ron Aractingi, owner of AutoSolutions, has graciously extended the group buy pricing to E30 and E36 owners that may be interested in arguably the best SSK on the market.

If desired, see the thread here:

The fundamental problem with the Bear SSK is that it's only useful to people with the ZF5.

Not true. It uses the AKG selector rod so you can just buy the rod you need for the 6 speed or whatever.

AKG race shifter is also a fantastic route!

LOL.

Uh, no, it won't. The Bear carrier will not fit. (And the Z3M shift lever will absolutely suck ass on a Getrag transmission.)

Edit: And the AKG race shifter is a *terrible* idea unless you want to install stiff engine and transmission mounts. Which I most emphatically do not. A large fraction of the reason why I bought another E36 is so that I could fit the S50B32 in with OE mounts, rather than having to use poly to keep it from eating the radiator from the inside.

I had my AKG race shifter in with stock motor mounts few a few thousand miles before I installed my poly motor mounts so care to explain why it's such a bad idea? Worked out fine for me and my bad, forgot the carrier is different lengths for the 6 speed so give yourself a pat on the back for that one!
