Finally its gotten warm enough here in NY to pull the beast out the garage and take a few pics. I got it in late Feb. and so far have installed H&R's up front and today installed the E60 short shifter. The install was a breeze once I got it up on ramps. (I probably should have done the shifter install before the springsouich) Anyway, I have been long overdue for some photos.......I'm surprised I haven't been banned!:)

Looking good! How long did it take to install the shifter?

Only about a 1/2 hour once it was up on the ramps. I couldn't drive up them so I had to jack the car up and place them under the wheels. The actual install was a piece of cake, and I highly recommend it. I'd say about a 20% reduction in shifter throw and a much notchier engagements. The best mod per $1 spent IMO. About $65 total. I couldn't be happier!:hihihi:​

Nice rig, man!

I agree that the shift boot looks strange. I have read you need to cut the existing one somehow (?) or get a shorter one to have it look like it belongs.

Not my car, though, so to each his own.

:cheers:

I cut the OE boot down, and I agree it looks funky in the pictures. I looked today as I drove to work and it looked fine. It must have just been the pictures, as I took it right after I put the knob on. Once I drove around a while, the boot fell back to its normal position.
