    now i'm lost? the video shows a 330d that has a shorter shift than the m3, with the longer piece from the ball to the bottom making it shift quicker, and the shorter shaft!
    what do you mean the petrol short shift? whats that fitted to?

    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.

    are now i got you, so when you said the same as a petrol short shift, you men't an after market short shifter, i wonder if they cottoned on to the fact the 330d was a short shifter for the petrol models and copied it selling as a short shift kit with a large cost!
    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.

    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.

    Cheers guys
