Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

Cyrus,


Looks like my M5 isn't leaving me - despite my reluctant best efforts.

As per Burton's previous post - can you list exactly which parts you'd recommend buying (from the above weblink you posted to the RealOem kit listing diagram) ?

I'm considering fitting this to my E34 M5 - I drove AndyE's UK LE before he sold it with the UUC Short-Shifter fitted - and can testify that the the difference and improvement in gearchange was night-and-day compared to the porridge-stirrer in my car.

TK.

Glad your keeping the beast!


If you go that link above you will see the full diagram.

I will go through it once I have finished sending out a few orders I have and post the part numbers.

Re: Short Shifter - The BMW parts bin way.

I put a factory lever in mine over two years ago. It was listed for a '95 M3. It may be the same as one of the Z3 ones I don't have the part number with me. It is a much shorter throw than stock. It is not as short as any of the uuc shifters I've installed for people. It is barely notchy. It feels good enough that I decided not to buy a short shifter. The best thing is there is no extra noise like most aftermarket shifters.

Just like to add,

I Met Dalius the other day and he has a UUC short shifter fitted. It felt no different to my Z3 1.9 shifter. Same throw, no difference in notchiness.

Can't go wrong with the Z3 1.9 when it's just £50 in total for the parts.

I'm sure the two shifters can feel close initially, but if you have the factory rubber parts in there, it will wear faster than the UUC shifter. Over time I doubt you can make the same comparison.

Yes but you can replace it 4 or 5 times before getting to the price of a UUC one.

Also, id rather wear out plastic parts than transfer unecesarry wear into the gearbox - not saying it does that but why did BMW not make it metal?
