Good find, perhaps I had a shorter lever to begin with. Not bashing the DIY, just didn't share the same optimal results as everyone else.

same here. I am happy with the slightly shorter height, but was hoping for less throw.

I think the OP did this on an E39 5 series which has a very tall shifter.. so in his case, there would be a significant improvement. my 530's shifter was definitely taller than my stock 330. I appreciate the DIY OP.

Cheat Sheet:

GT1/ISIS/MoDiC = Factory authorized diagnostic system used by BMW dealerships across the world.

NCS Expert = BMW Factory R&D programming tool available on the internet (not intended for the public and not available to the dealership network)

OEM = Genuine BMW part only available from a franchised BMW dealership.

DME = Engine Management Computer
