BMW Performance Short Shifter

Can anyone confirm if a BMW Performance short shift kit for a 330 will fit a 325? I thought both models had the same gearbox?

My car is a 2007 325 E90 - BMW UK have a kit listed the 330 but not the 325

The E90 328i and 325i share the common gearbox. However the 330i is different. Here are Part numbers below to help you out

325i/328i - 25110430359

330i - 25110430357

it will fit, just not a perfect fit. itll sit off centered, a bit to the right. it does sit lower and the throws are a bit shorter than the 325/328 version. good luck.

Thanks for the info Gents, that's a great help. If it's not quite a perfect if I'll give it a miss.

Ahhhhh nooooo!!! Don't do that! The 325 and 330 have different shifters. One has a kink and the other doesn't. I ordered one and got the wrong in the mail. The shifter knob sat almost all the way in the boot. I almost crashed my fingers shifting to third. The effort was ridiculous! It was like driving a tractor. It also ground every one-two shift no matter how gentle I shifted. Get the proper shifter for your car.
