Just thought I'd share my $.02 on this topic. I went from 100% stock shifter setup to E60 shifter with F10 M5 knob for about a month which was awesome but there was a small bit of slop that I could detect even with brand new bushings on both ends of the carrier assembly as well as the carrier bore to shift lever ball so I contacted Ronald at AutoSolutions who I worked with to fabricate a complete short shift kit that is identical to the E60 shifter in both install height and throw reduction (~20%) and still uses the stock carrier but is a spherical bearing cartridge based shifter assembly similar to the Dinan SSK so it uses socket head cap screws to attach cartridge to the carrier bore rather than the factory plastic carrier bushing, now it's ideal with perfectly direct shifts and no discernible play whatsoever.
