    Hi Mark,

    there are some out there, I thin B&M do offer one and a few others - plenty on ebay but I have never tried them so cannot comment!

    But fitting wise you will have to get under the car and drop the exhaust too:

    see here - for an M3 but I would think the same http://www.activeautowerke.com/pdf/product43.pdf

    I'd like to know too - I got a spare gearbox that is going on my car soon, and i'd like to swap it over before the box goes on.

    How did you find that on eBay ? What did you type in ? I tried searching, and all my results came back from America... I can't wait that long.
    Plus, I'd prefer a 50% reduction in throw if I can get one.

    I would reommend doing it at the same time as the box change mate - will save you having to do a few things twice and if you are paying someone... it will save you money
