Au Contraire! All short shift kits are not created equal. You have (3)
basic E36 kits out there. The Autothority kit, Metric Mechanic (these are
sold under several turner names), and AC Schnitzer. Of these, the Schnitzer
kit is the class of the lot and at $ 900 it damn well should be. It's work
of art but the price is hard to justify and it replaces the entire
linkage.. The Metric Mechanic kit is fair to middling and uses some of the
existing linkage. Autothority's kit is the least intensive and tends to
deteriorate (bushings) so you won't find many recommending it that have
owned it for some time.
As these can be a bit of a pain to install - you only want to do it one
Korman has a NEW short shift kit coming for the E36. It's supposed to do
great things and be ready in a few months. May be worth the wait - time
