    Hey all i've been reading through several threads on the forums and i've been wanting to give my 330ci a shorter shift for a while now.

    I am thinking of going with a Z4 one but can anyone advise me which one to go for, and what other small parts, like washers, I will need to accomplish this?

    (Part numbers would be a great help)

    Was also wondering if anyone has a good DIY link for this change.

    Cheers.

    Dave.

    HI Dave,

    I bought one for my E46 325 Ci from ebay...see link

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-Quick-Shif...item51999286b0

    It really is a big differance, but would recommend getting a replacement nylon socket for the ball as i damaged mine removing it. They are only £7 from BMW. You are just supposed to twist them out of the catch but mine was stuck. Other than that, easy to install provided you have access to a ramp or have a friendly local garage.

    BTW there is plenty of videos on youtube on installation if you want to check them out....good luck, it really is worth the effort.

    Cheers for the advice.

    I have gone with the one sold on Understeer.com which has a bend in it so hopefully wont hit anything its not supposed too.

    Will have a look for DIY guides.

    I am not too sure about this but I think the short shift kits fit both 5 speed and 6 speed models. Obviously just a different gear knob, Would need a person who is more experienced to correct me.

    Dave.
