Which is the best short shift to put into an e36 out of the Z model ones!

I think the z4 will also work. Either that or get one from a 6-cylinder z3

they're all different and i got no idea if all of these would fit or only the 1.9 z3 one, the z4's i dnt like coz they sit too low nd thts not as comfertable to drive:

would all these fit? does anyone know? if they do ill get the z3 M one which would have the biggest reduction in shifting but wouldnt sit too low!

thnx

Get the Z4 shift 3.0 lever. The Z3 will work however, it is not as much. Here's the part number 25-11-7-516-160. Make sure you use this one, if you go the Z4 route, because there is a newer 3.0 Z4 shift lever, that I am not sure will work. Also,I don't think that the knob sits too low with this one.
