Shorter isn't always better. Effort increases dramatically to shift a short lever.

Are your headers in yet? And who cares? Shorter is always better.

Do they make a 'short shifter' for automatics?

I should have worded that differently. Do they make a shorter shifter for autos.

I'd like something that is a bit more low profile since I put in a shift boot. Haven't had any luck looking.

I upgraded my wheels to 19x8.5 and 19x9.5. The old 18x8 tires did not fit my new rims so I get new tires too . The only issue is with the rears rubbing a bit so it's parked until my fender roller shows up next week.

Shut your whore mouth! Headers won't be going in until I get my baseline update for the current set up. Then I get to spend a day cursing the BMW gods while I break every nut and bolt off the head and flanges...
