My son replaced the shifter in his '95 M3 coupe w/ an M-coupe shifter and now I will be replacing my "long throw" 97 540/6 shifter w/ his old M3 shifter.

Install seems straight forward, but have a couple of questions:
- I know I can use two medium flat screwdrivers but thought I'd ask if anyone had a shift lever cup removal tool hanging around from a prior UUC or EVO install?
- Also, should I just re-use the selector rod washers and securing clip from the existing shifter or are new ones an added ounce of preventive maintenance?
- Any other things I should consider replacing while I'm doing this job?

TIA,Ken
