Short Shift Kit for the E92?

Anyone know of someone who makes a short shifter for the 335i? The tranny is great, but the throws are a tad long. Will this void the warranty you think?

dont know about the kit, but here is a couple of options for the shift knob that might reduce some throw.

true that......enough with the warranty cries. But apparently the b&M one scrapes against something. it has to be milled down. Don't think I'd want to mill anything down that involves giving me the ability to shift my car.

Any other suggestions on what short shift "system" to use?

We stock the B&M shifter that fits the 335. Price on it shipped is $179.99 Let me know, the same shifter fits the 330 6 speed.

Thanks,

Rob,

Andy (grey/red 335 coupe that stopped by your shop). I left you a voicemail and a post but still haven't heard back. I'd be willing to buy the B&M if you can install it. This way there's not worry about whether or not it needs to be milled down. Let me know what you think.

Rob,

You can count me in too if your shop can install it. I'll gladly drive down for the day to have it installed.

i don't think u need a short shifter kit....

I think you need a short shift knob. It is cheaper, the tranny will feel exactly the same, except the throws will be shorter. There are a bunch of OEM options as well as shift knobs from tuners such as the knobs from hamann and schnitzer. I think these also look much better, and you won't have to fuck around with these kits.

just my 2% comming from someone who has had 2 short shift knobs so far, and have loved them both.

Yeah, I ordered the Hamann knob. It'll be delivered with the Hamann sideskirts Jan 20th. I think it looks awesome.
