why would you cut your shifter down?
just buy a short shifter from ebay, it will definitely make it easier and faster to shift without you being homo and cutting your shifter down

Erm... after reading a few reviews of short shift kits most people say that they don't really make a great deal of difference.

Also I fail to see the connection between cutting down your gearstick and being gay!

you have to buy a kit... you cant just cut down the shifter. You might be able to a shifter from a different BMW Model to shorten the throw
