Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

Farrell,


That's really useful to know with regard to Lind's Parts Prices.

I managed to secure 20% off the price of front discs and pads from Willam Jacks' PArts Dept. recently - (Thanks to Brian for that assistance from a previous thread), but it's a bit of a trek from Hertfordshire.

A mate of mine who works at my firm lives in Braintree - so I could despatch him to Chelmsford to get parts from Lind in the future if discount levels are likely to be similar.

...that's what I like to see - the power of the m5board.com to the people !!

Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

This is exactly why I threw my UUC shifter on ebay the second I bought the car. I knew one of the Z3 levers would work. Whats the part numbers? Can anyone make a little step by step installation procedure, Ive never messed with a shifter on a car newer than 1968?

Also my stock shifter seems kind of knotchy and tough, maybe it just needs some grease?

Those Z3 levers are like $40 at the dealer. The E39 540 guys used to do the same swap and they got diagrams of all the shifters and pn's.

I was just trying to find the article about it, I thought it was bmwtips.com but they either got rid of the article or it was a different e39 related website,

Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

The part number for the lever is: 25111434148

See this link for all other parts that you could replace. I woulod highly suggest all the bushings and washers aswell, this will get rid of any excess play.

Installation takes no more than 30mins, you could pay a garage and save your hands and face getting dirty.

Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

Farrell,

Lind are good people.. I bought all of my parts for my E34 M from them and they are good bunch. This is in Ipswich, as they have Colchester also. So Prohaps this could be done accross the Lind Dealerships?!

No mate
Thats the whole problem with Lind.
They operate independantly of each other.
I used to buy bits at Colchester Lind from their pts manager, A chap called Dave.
Then I started questioning just how much I was spending & how little discount I had been receiving. Thanks again to Yewcorner.
I spent 3000 in parts over a 12 onth period & I was lucky to get 7.5 % overall.
Lind-Colchester a re a waste of time compared to their Chelmsford counterparts.

Thats how im seeing it.

Farrell

Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

Yep. Make sure you buy new circlips as they can break when removing them.

And be sure to buy yourself the plastic holder for the ball in the gear lever before attempting the job as it will most definately need to be smashed out. If you aint got one you aint got no gears. Be sure to also have some grease to lubricate the ball with otherwise its not going to be a nice gearshift.
