I've got the BMW performance one. Felt a little notchy while I was getting used to it, but feels more and more slick every time I row

You don't have many choices for the 335 and the BMW Perf SS is probably the best bet.

Rogue Engineering pulled their SSK
UUC has an SSK for the 335 but it's expensive and it sucks.

B&M has one that's affordable but I don't know much about it.

I went with the BMW Perf SS but have not installed it yet.

I bought the one listed for the e90 330i and it works fine. No need to spend an extra $175 for the 335i option.

What is the extra $175 for? Is the shifter itself the same?

I got a BNIB BMW perf shifter for less than $200 on the FS Forum....

I think the carrier arm is the other part....it also comes with the cup section.

Nice piece.

I could swear that Dinan offered a short shift kit but I can't find it on their website. You could give them a call......

I don't see one for the E90/E92. It does look like they have one for the 135i however.

Yeah, very weird. They show 3 different models but do not identify which cars they go to. Might be a discontinued item.
