UUC Short Shifter Kits
There are few things that can make every drive more satisfying than the "snick-snick" feeling of a precision shifter. Too bad BMWs are not known for that, and that is where UUC Motorwerks steps in. The UUC Ultimate Short Shifter is unique, completely different than anything else available. Their design starts with the finest materials: T-304 stainless steel, T-6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, precision bearings, self-adjusting and lubricating primary pivot bearing, and the finest-grade silicone vibration absorbing material. Our products are not modified BMW components, and they are not "one size fits all" as with lesser offerings. The unique characteristics of the UUC design include height adjustment via upper-section length change, flex and rotation free lever construction with full-length vibration absorbing bushing housing, and corrected linkage geometry with self-adjusting primary pivot bearings that retain lubrication and wont distort or "ovalize" like solid metal or plastic designs. The UUC Ultimate Short Shifter is considered by many to be the finest short shifter on the market for BMW today. Try one and feel the difference!
B&M Short Shift Kit
This Sport Shifter has all of the features a performance minded driver requires. The finest materials, CAD designed, coupled with a short throw results in one extraordinary precision shifting system. Special features engineered into this unit include a two piece fully isolated stick assembly, exclusive integrated and dampened pivot cup with self lubricating pivot ball, counter balanced to reduce effort and exclusive polymer 'Iglide' T-500 lower pivot bushings that are impervious to contamination. The harder this bushing is pushed, the better it works! Featuring an exclusive adjustable pivot, which allows this shifter to fit both standard and M Series applications. All of this combined with a simple straightforward installation provides a professional level shifter. Provides a 20% - 25% throw reduction, depending on the vehicle. B&M also offers a lifetime warranty! If performance is everything to you - let B&M give you the Edge!

AKG Motorsport DTM Shift Selector Rod

UUC Double Shear Selector Rod
The DSSR redistributes the torsional forces from the pin/bushing interface to the complete face area on both sides of the selector joint. By taking advantage of the strength of steel in the DSSR and the body of the joint, the problem of deformation is eliminated and the movement of the selector rod correlates directly to movement of the selector joint - the only "free play" movement remaining in the shifter assembly is from within the transmission itself. In-gear "free play" is reduced to approximately 10mm total when used with a UUC EVO3 shifter.
The original BMW shifter and all other aftermarket shifters (except UUC which uses deformation-free bearings) contain a plastic bushing similar to the selector joint, and the exact same wear and ovalization causes those shifters to get sloppy. The DSSR permanently fixes these shifters also. The DSSR is compatible with all brand shifters, whether original BMW or other-brand aftermarket. When used with the original BMW shifter or other aftermarket shifters, the amount of "free play" will be greatly reduced but varies by shifter (flexation of the shifter shaft contributes to the total "free play" travel).
While there are other replacement selector rods sold in the aftermarket (including "no tolerance" brass and "heavy" selector rods), none of them will get rid of the slop and "free play" in the BMW shifter assembly. These alternate products are not actually improving the shift feel at all, but are simply rods with alternate geometry (either bent or twisted), an accommodation to make the "universal fit" aftermarket shifters fit properly. These other aftermarket shifters, even with their "heavy" selector rods, will still be as sloppy as the original BMW shifters they are replacing. While the throw may be shorter, the precision of the assembly is no better than a new BMW part, and will develop the same slop within a few thousand miles.
