The attached picture shows what the 25117553172 stick looks like...
What does this mod do?
Erm, gives you a shorter shift on your manual gearbox using OEM parts
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.

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.
