So that's half of my play with the same shifter!

What bushing(s) did you replace? Shifter rod bushing, selector rod coupler, front/ rear carrier bushings?

Anyone have opinion on B&M short shifter?

Has anyone installed just the UUC DSSR with a BMW performance shifter?

Is it worth $125 or should I just update all the OE bushings, washers, coupler, etc. ?
