the transfer box on your iX is directly below the shifter. in order to do a SSK you must raise the cup that the ball on the shifter sits in. UUC Motorwerks short shift kits for the E36 come with a machined aluminium cup that raises the ball up just enough. if you dont raise it up, your shifter will hit the transfer box. i used the UUC cup on my iX and it worked great. you will also find that BMW made the internal throw of the gears closer than a regular iS transmission, so your short throw shifter will feel really short. even a little notchy, but not too bad. i love mine. GOOD LUCK
