well i decided that the next mod for my 95 318is will be a ssk. ive read some previous posts on this topic and i found out that you can swap an e46 325xi lever or and e36 m3/328 lever for the best shifts. is this true? if so, would either of those be better than a ssk from companies such as B&M, bavauto, or UUC? also, is there anything you hav to do to the 325xi or m3 levers to make it fit correctly in a 318 or does it fit perfectly?

thanx for any input

As far as I know, you don't have to do anything if you go with the m3/328 shifter to make it fit properly. Not sure abou the 325xi, but the Z3 shifter does require some bending.
