I have '93 525i w/ a 5 speed that seems to have excessive play or sloppiness in the gear shifter. I've looked at it from beneath the car it looks like a bitch to get to. Can I get an aftermarket kit or just rebuild the factory bmw shifter, it has 70k miles on it, thanks.

you can get either one you prefer. It's just the bushings that have worn out. Pretty easy fix.
