    Im picking up the plastic bearing (#7) tomorrow but I had a quick play with the lever earlier with the foam and rubber boot out and there didnt 'seem' to be much play in that item. The play 'seems' to be lower down in the region of #10. Mind, I have no experience in this area so only once I change it at the weekend will I be able to say for sure

    BUSH BEARING OVAL L=26MM/SCHWARZ 1 03/2003 25117507695 £1.70+vat
    Bearing, shift lever 1 03/2003 25111220600 £6.17+vat
    Plastic washer 10X16X0,9 4 03/2003 25111220439 £0.15+vat
    Shift lever 1 25117553172 £40.49+vat

    Which comes to a total of £57.52 including (17.5% vat)


    The Shift lever is from a E92 330Xi Coupe is this correct as the diagrams are totally different for my 330 coupe

    http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=WE91&mospid=50512&btnr=25_0428& hg=25&fg=05&hl=10????

    Has anyone actually used the E92 lever from this forum? I can't judge if Paddy2besure has or not as he has only stated he has done the mod which fixes the sloppyness.

    Please could someone advise as last thing I want to do is screw my gearbox/driveshaft up.

    Do you actually have to change the shift lever to fix the sloppyness or is that just a mod for shorter shift change???

    Many Thanks
    Hi guys,

    With a new baby and that I haven't had a chance to this conversion yet... has any one else?

    I recently spent loads of money upgrading my interior to the special edition Red Nappa Leathers. Mega comfy and look the part worth every penny.

    Weather is getting better now so I might go for the shifter mod next.

    Hi all,

    I have converted my E46 325 with a short shift stick. A few pointers i discovered. Make sure byou have a new nylon cup (£7.95 from BMW) cos u gonna mess the old one up getting it to release. Remove the 'C' clip from below on the linkage and mind you don't loose the washers that fall off from each side of the rod. You need to put these back. Haynes manuals say use a special tool to get the nylon bush to rotate but mine rotated easily with a screwdriver (From top not below). Only thing was it needed prising out from the bearer (this is where you break off some of the Nylon tabs or perhaps mine was just tight). Lightly grease up ball and replace everything in reverse order.
    The result gives approx half the shift travel of the stick and makes it a much more positive change. Well worth the hastle and ideally use a ramp to get underneath.
