    hey guys, I have a getrag 5 speed manual from an e36 that I‘m going to put in my e46 320i my understanding is it’s an exact fit, However it looks like shifter rod joint (the part that links the shift linkage to the gearbox) is different for the e46 compared the e36. Before I buy one for my...

    I am currently having a problem with the automatic shifter on my 03 330Ci. I have no problems shifting into P,R,N,D, however when shifting into S or Manual mode, it does not always engage. The S does not always appear on the dash and no gears change when I push the shifter up or down. Sometimes...

    6-speed swapped my car and am selling the old parts. The trim is in perfect condition, no scratches in the finish, and all of the tabs are intact. I can provide more pictures to anyone that is interested.

    Hi guys, My car recently got a problem which makes it undrivable. when shifting I almost need to put the shifting lever through my radio to get it in gear (this is with every gear). The Neutral is everywhere and nowhere, and it also likes to pop out of second and third gear. Does anyone know...

    I have installed a 330d short shifter, which made a nice difference to shifts. However, I still have looseness / slack in side-to-side movement of the shifter. Can you guys point me to the correct part to replace to address this? Is it #12 here along with the #10 washers...

    Hey everyone, The shifter in my e46 M3 6MT with ~130k miles has been quite loose ever since I bought it at 100k miles. It's just general slop –*no specific direction, just loose overall. I really noticed it after driving some stock manual bimmers with tight shifters. Any ideas on what parts to...

    Well, today marks the day that I'm sick of the side to side movement in my shifter. About 4 months ago now I replaced all the linkage bushings and shifter in my 04 325xi and it had made a big difference. My problem is that my side to side slop never went away. I've had people claim to me that...

    Hi, This will be my first time posting here. I have just bought my first bmw, a 330ci 6-spd manual. Something i noted was how much play there was in the shifter and when i opened it up I couldn't see that anything was bad right away, all the bearings visible from inside the car were in good...

    Hello everyone, I have a slight problem..... Currently my BMW 325ci has a lot of slop sideways in gears 1-4. Gear 5 and reverse don't seem to have this issue as much probably because they are used less? There is a slight up and down movement as well. I have been doing some research and I...

    2001 325I w/steptronic Are steptronic shifters repairable, or do I have to buy a new unit to replace my broken shifter? And are they interchangeable? If I buy a used one from a salvage yard, is it going to work if it's not from the same year and model? Son's car won't shift into any gear...

    2001 325i Automatic/Steptronic won't shift. Got under the car and had son sit inside and move shifter back and forth, with key on, but motor not started (it won't start). He was driving it and when he stopped the car in our driveway and moved gearshift lever into P(ark) it didn't go into...

    Was searching around for different types of automatic shifter knobs and I came about these on Fleabay... What do you guys think? Link Here... I plan on doing a full interior glossy carbon fiber wrap on all the wood and part of the door handles, so these kind of caught my eye. I prefer...
