will it fit, or will it not. that is the question

That is correct, I could not reach the pin to remove the stock shifter. The transfer casse in in the way. So 545 shifter may very well fit on an XI, but installing it is a pain.
I might give it another shot ... time will tell.

There are many people who've installed short shifter kits on Xi and the 545i shifter is one of them with many others.
Please look into it again, dont sell the parts.

Check my PM.

Its been fun
