Take an old blanket, and cut tiny pices to fit the top of the shifter and hold it down with the double sided tape and put the shift knob back.
I've done it and it has almost but eliminated the rattle we've been experiencing. I think u have to experiment and minimize the rattle/synchro before shelling money out for a nother ****er, and that too something that is expensive as the AC Schnitzer. Keep in mind, you will not be able to use the stock shift knob on the AC shifter, because it comes with a tow-ball type shifter. You can't change it -- according to the info I have.
It might be even worth by a new BMW shift knob and putting it on the UUC shifter. Since the new one hasn't been installed on any, it might sungly fit the UUC shifter and the rattle could be gone.
I am getting my new shift knob tomorrow and will let you know how I went. Best wiehes and think twice before you shell out more of your hard earned money.

for $125. Installation at dealer was $240. I like it a lot. Not noisy in the tiniest bit.

I have tried shifting by holding the area in the middle of the shifter under the shift knob, and that seemed to reduce the noise a bit. I will attempt to use some vibration or noise dampening material around the same area and see how that goes. I also have a new stock shift knob on order, and should arrive in two days. I will post you or email you if I experience any breakthroughs.

If you experience it first please email me with the fix at:
