Well to be completely honest I am pretty happy with my 330d shifter. Throws are about the perfect length, it has a very solid feel to it, it doesn't require a tremendous amount of effort, and perhaps most importantly, it reduced my shifter slop significantly. But the lever does sit a bit off center; it is kinda shifted rightward. If the 545 shifter can get the neutral position to be roughly centered again, I might just buy the lever (though I don't really want to deal with that circlip again lol)

Based on the link below, the 545 shifter should be slightly shorter than the 330d. And at least one poster says it sits in a more neutral position. So maybe l'll do it

Does anyone know how the "545" shifter compared with the e60 lci and e60 m5 shifters?
