If the OEM shift lever part number for the xi is the same as the i, IT WILL WORK. PERIOD. The geometry does not change, it only "lowers it".

The parts people told me the exact same thing for my 335i => this kit is NOT compatible - still scratching my head - its fine!

I hope someone who has access to the BMW parts catalog or direct experience can weigh in on this!

Even if its the same part, no guarantee that the DIY will work to the letter with the xi, since I'm not familiar with the driveline...
