OK my friend with E46 M3 with a normal petrol gear lever wanted to fit a short shift kit.
He found out that the 330D gear lever is the same size as the short shift lever supplied for a petrol engine and cheaper.
So he has purchased the 330D lever and fitted that to his M3, "with me so far"
He now has an M3 with a short shift gear lever fitted at less cost to himself.
is he happy with it then? and has it made much of a difference?
the bit that threw me was
A friend of mine has just fitted one on his E46 M3 and it works fine, apparently they are the same part size for sizei read it as it was the same size as the m3 1 he took off! lol.
Yes he is happy with it but I have known others not be happy with the notchy feel a short shift can give. A be careful what you wish for senario, keep the original parts and you can always change them back.
here there is a 330d breaking on ebay! may sell it cheap http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-Breaking-E...item56378fe5fe
interesting that an m3 has a longer throw than a 330d, are all petrol models like this i wonder? that is a cheap way to a short shift, seen some for over £200 with the gear lver carrir aswell!
Did any one figure out what the petrol ones have?
I have a 330 and i dont want to waste money buying this is if will not make any difference. I'd rather just stick to standard, I need to buy one anyway as I have the sloppy feel.
