Awesome thanks for the input. I will probably just enjoy it in its stock form until I get beat by a e63 lol. im coming from an abarth 500 so yeah its plenty quick on the low end for me rnI went with a 3.91 about 10 years ago because I still wanted to chew up the miles on road trips. Had the chance to go to a 4.10 a coupe years ago, when I went to a 4.10 in my e28m5, but chickened out for the e60.
I figured I didn’t need two m5s with 4.10s.
After about 10 years, I'm about to swap out my 1.9L z3 shifter for an AKG Motorsport shifter and CAE DSSR for my e60m5. The z3 1.9L has the "correct" bend for the e60. At one point, I concurrently had the same 1.9L z3 in my e28m5, e39m5, and e60m5. After 150,000 miles of the z3 setup on the e60, I needed a refresh of all the parts. Now, my e60 will be closer to the AAF shifter in my e28 and CAE shifter in my e30.I have always used the 545 E60 or Z4M shifters, I am surprised to see everyone suggests the Z3. Has anyone use the others (they are also less expensive). The throws have been measured by several and the reduction in the before mentioned are less (and if you want shorter height, they are also shorter in terms of upper length)
Well...for your track car, the AKG is about as simple as it gets. It's billet. It's simple! A few of the SE30 guys run them in their race cars.Note - will research the AKG for my track car!
