What's the best quality short shifter for a 95 M3? Is shifting really improved? Any comments are greatly appreciated.

Dave,<br>I have been looking at a short shifter for my 95 M3. I can't give you any first hand experience, but I did find two neat sites that provide a really cheap alternative ($50 for a Z3 shifter install) as well as some good explaniatiuons as to subtle details.<p>http://www.mz3.net/articles/3.html for Z3 shifter "how to" article.<p>http://www.shortshifter.com/erk.htm for short shifter theory and ERK kit.<p>I also look forward to some honest real feedback for the board...<br>Ted<br> <p><i>: What's the best quality short shifter for a 95 M3?

hi folks,<p>considering that <b><i> I </i></b> developed the process of the "M Roadster in the M3", wrote the article posted on MZ3.net, an a partner in UUC Motorwerks (www.shortshifter.com), most questions can be answered on the website. However, as you surf the net for the "$50 shift kit" for your $40,000 car, be wary.<p>all of our kits are designed for the average joe...very through directions, specialized tools included, and specifically modified shifter levers. we don't just bend a lever, but we have to bend it for the car and we also crimp it since after installing over 100 shifters personally, i've seen what happens to the stock levers over time.<p>you're welcome to surf and gather the parts, but we've already had people sending use their pre-purchased lever for us to modify. with over 500 short shift kits out there, so many people can't be wrong.<p>we have another part in development which would make the shifter on the M3 even shorter <b> AND </b> smoother. don't wanna give it away, but needless to say, it's very cool.<p>any questions, direct them throught the website.<p>regards,<br>ben liaw
