Default short shifter

I'm a noobie, with a 2003 vert. Incredibly surprised by the stock shifter in this M3. Only 4300 miles and shifter is sloppy. I put a UUC in my 540 and I liked that, but does anyone have any other favorite? UUC costs about $500 with the DSSR plus installation .

just picked up my M3 but this is the first thing on my list. came from an S2000 which has an amazingly tight and precise shifter. the M3 shifter feels like a dildo in a hooker's ass by comparison.

I came from two different S2000s (AP1 and AP2) so I know exactly how you feel. I bought the OEM 330d kit. All the info/part numbers/pictures can be found here:

If you have any other questions about it, hit me up.

No doubt.

I'm rockin an auto solutions ssk. The shorter throws paired with longer shift knob (i.e. jaffster/ind) is an absolute must. It might take a little getting used to, as it is noticeably notchier.

i did the stock 330d shifter and i think it's a nice upgrade. i'd have to say its not a bad deal when its only $90 at the dealership and pretty simple to install with a second hand to help you in the cabin.

correct me if im wrong but i feel like its a good 25-30% shorter, atleast. perfect for me.
