www.bimmertoys.com has the UUC Evo II shifter that ig ot for 195$ and its amazing, but there is one flaw, i guess it made the linkage come down a little and so it would rub on the Vibration Dampener which is located around where the Guibo meets the tranny, but you can remove the dampener after removing the driveshaft, its somewaht busy work, but its something that needs to be done. Removing the dampener creates no difference in performance or sound or anything, its just suppose to help some vibration, but there isnt any difference(noticible) after removing it.

the only problem with that is he wants one for around 150 not 200, my B&M fit right in and it has just as good performance, with no modification for 100 bucks maybe less

see I have a UUC in my e36 and I LOVE IT! But I've driven this e30 4 times and I know it needs one. I think I'm going to get B&M for 100 dolla. Sounds like a great deal to me.

B&M is definetely a good way to go, but if you want to spend some more$, go for UUC, you wont be losing anything going for each one.
