Why did I wait so long to get one?

This has got to be on everyones' list of thing to do. It is by far the most noticable upgrade you can do. This transmission feels like it's brand new. The throw is short not much increase in effort and almost no slop at all. Insallation took me about an hour. Absolutly FANTASTIC !

The next thing is to get rid of the CDV ( Clutch Delay Valve ) .

NOT A FAN... sorry.. been there done that... too sloppy for me....

Rogue Eng. Octane SSK.... the best in my opinion.. and I've been through about 4 of them other brands... they suck.

This is just my opinion....

understeer.com has some "cheap" short shift kits, made from 325xi / m3 / m coupe shift levers.

look under parts store -> shift levers.

here's pelicanparts' DIY installation writeup:

http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/techarticl...Short_Shift.htm

they also comment on the use of other BMW shift levers to make a "cheap" SSK...:

Quote:
If you have an E30 or E36 318, 325 or 323, then you can swap in the BMW E46 325Xi lever (part number BW-25-11-1-434-148, about $55) to obtain a 29% reduction in the shift throw.* Or, you can swap in the E36 M3/328 lever (OEM-25-11-1-221-977) which basically was a "built-in" short shift to these cars, and offers about a 1/3 reduction in lever travel.* If you own an E36 M3 or a 328, and you want an even shorter throw, you can swap in the shift lever from an M-Roadster (OEM-25-11-2-228-384, about $55).* The bad news is that if you want to use the M-Roadster lever, you may have to bend it slightly to make it fit properly.* Use a bench vise and bend it to match your stock lever.
this is probably the most cost effective way to get a SSK for your car.

Another manufacturer that I like for short shift kits is AutoSolutions which offers an amazingly detailed kit that replaces many shift bushings and eliminates many points of failure for the shifter.

Yeah, it was very hard for me to find what i wanted. 325is only, 5 speed manual, white only, black interior and low miles for a good price.

I had to search for 2 months...

But i found it! :P
