How long would it take for a shop to install this shifter http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-325...ter/ES2538371/
yah...30-40 mins max..if you follow the instructions properly. i got my E60 shifter directly from BMW costed me $61 and that Clip is $1 the plastic bushing was $10 and got a used ZHP knob for $10 .. lol ..plus there was a promotion going on so got that shifter for $51..so ended up spending about half, i bet if you do the same from you local BMW it will cost you about the same or less and you get it locally!

part numbers are on the beginning of this thread!!
