B&M short shifter?

we all know there aren't a lot of SSK options for xi's. Anyone try one of these? I was gonna go with UUC because they make one specifically for our cars, but its freakin expensive for a shifter! Was looking at the BMW Performance SSK, but it doesn't look like it will work on an xi.

B&M Make great shifters, however I personally have been using UUC products since 2002. Long before I worked for ECS I run them in all my own personal cars. They really are worth the money!

You can check out our entire Xi Shift Shift Kit section below...

Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe

I know UUC probably makes the best SSK kit on the market (apparently Rogue is pretty good too), but is it really worth paying almost double the price over the B&M? Just interested in some shorter throws and something that won't break down in a couple years. Also trying to justify paying the significantly steeper price of the UUC. I have to replace my clutch so that's the first priority.

Anyone ever have any problems with B&M shifters?

Do we know if the B&M actually fits an xi?

ECS is notorious for listing parts for our cars that don't fit an xi. I wouldn't pull the trigger until you find somebody who installed it in an xi already. If you can't find anybody, I'd probably order the UUC setup too, just in case the B&M doesn't fit- it wouldn't be fun to have to drop the tranny twice.
