Interesting mod, oddly enough the shorter shifter makes the entire center console look cleaner. Nice!

Wait is that a e92 with the new f30 sport tranny? Or you just used the shift panel from an f30? That looks nice!

Theres a retrofit kit, I think the only thing that doesnt work is the Park button. But thats just me going based off memory when I was looking into this.
