Depends on how fast you can move your clutch pedel :P Looks like it messes up the interior of the car from how huge it is.

I can't find them for BMWs at this site......... Any suggestions?

I think it can be installed under the leather shift cover. But it's hard to remind in which gear you drive.

That's one of the worst mods I have seen for a car. I can't imagine how the hell you would install it and not knowing what gear you're in is awful.

I surely would not want that on my car, however...

You can tell what gear you are in by the tachometer. i.e. If you are going 70mph on the interestate, and your tachometer is red-lining, you've probably got another gear left...

And that is assuming there is no visual gear indicator available for that unit.

I'm sure you'll agree that most modern automatic cars with a console shift have additional gear indicator lights in the guage cluster. Why assume that there is not one here?

My buddy used to own a Camaro Z28. He installed a Hurst Super Shifter. He could shift gears in the time takes to press in the clutch and let it out again. Let me tell you, THAT was sweet...

just my $0.02

they were a thing of the past until imports brought them back.

It seems like SMG shifting, only this ricy thing is fully mechanical.

I'd think it is for people who can't operate the manual shift!

Definitely. It makes it more traditional and the chicks like it more anyway. Makes it looks like you're in control. Not a pussy shifter.

Sorry to raise this thread from the dead, but rumor has it....:

It’s been a busy year at BMW. In the last 12 months the German automaker began selling the next-generation 5-Series, the all-new X3, a revised X5, and now the 6-Series has returned after a 15-year hiatus. So what’s next? Based on the car unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, there’s a good chance it will be the next-generation M5 sport sedan. For a long time the M5 was the ultimate in 4-door high performance; however, this current generation is almost five years old, and a number of strong competitors such as the Mercedes-Benz E55 and Audi RS6 have come to market in the last few years. In Geneva, BMW showed what it’s calling the M5 Concept. Based on the new 5-Series platform, the concept features a 5.0-liter V10—yes, V10—engine mated to a 7-speed Sequential Manual Gearbox (SMG). Horsepower is rated around 500, which gets this sedan to 60 mph in less than five seconds. So when will BMW build the M5? We’ll quote the BMW press materials: “When exactly the concept of a series-produced M5 will be realized cannot be confirmed at the present time. However, it can be assumed that a successor to the extremely popular BMW M5, based on the BMW Concept M5 now being exhibited, could possibly go on sale during the course of the year 2004.”

I guess, maybe?!
