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