I hear you. You may want to try a UUC ssk (or Active Autowerke). I had that in my E46 M3; the throws were short and distinct with a "clunk" into each gear. Probably not to the degree of your Vette/Hurst shifter, but certainly solid.

I'm coming from a Corvette with a Hurst shifter though; I love that thing. The mechanical clunk-clunk into each gear, and very short shifts. I want that in my 335i!
