  • Sits perfectly center
  • Doesn't hit anything with longer lower shift rod
  • Has less side to side play
  • Shift throw shorter vs. stock (feels like about 30%)
  • Sits lower (combination of the 1/4inch shorter 545i upper shift rod and shorter ZHP knob, which also help the shorter throw)
After driving around for the weekend I wonder how I ever lived without it. I can't vouch for a 6-speed or Xi, but fit and performance is perfect in a 323ci.

Blocked Out, great find and DIY.
Thanks for this post... Just more inspiration to get this mod, the wiggle room on the stock shifter is starting to drive me nuts.
