AKA the "Bitch Clip". If they have moved it to an easier location then great, if they havent, then that part alone can take up to 20 minutes to remove. Ive done several SS replacements on e36/e46's and this one part is annoyingly stubborn. Honestly, its the reason I wont be attempting a shortshifter on the e90.

On my e36, I had a custom bent lever made for me. I bet if you take yours out and get it into a vice, you could bend yours so that it is tilted back towards you to make centering a bit better.
