Subject: No more sloppy shifts!

I got my AC Schnitzer short shifter put in my M3 last night. Piece o' cake install if you have a lift. Took less than an hour.. Didn't do it myself, of course, but I hung around and watched, and took some pictures. I got a picture of the factory vs ACS shifter and all I can say is that it is a shame that the ACS has to be installed in the car where nobody can see it. The ACS shift knob looks really cool, and is really cool, especially when it is 30 degrees out. Brrrrrrrrrrrr! So how do I like it? Well, I haven't had much time to try the thing out yet, but after an early morning freezing my hand cruise through town, I can tell you that Duane is right. Ya gotta get one of these boys and girls! I don't know how it compares to the cheaper ones, but this ACS shifter is nice. No more sloppy shifts! Clicks through all the gears just as nice as can be. The throw seems to be about half of what it used to be, and there isn't any weird stuff like vibrating or notchiness. I can see how a person can get addicted to having one of these. I wonder if I can get one for my Honda Civic? <g>

M3 princess

PS My ACS shifter is the Arnold Schwartzenager version, and the factory shifter is kind of like Richard Simmons.
