Guys, education is your best friend.

BMW shifters, quite frankly, are terrible. Your original shifter feels loose and sloppy, and that will only get worse over time.

Replacing it with a new factory lever (regardless of it being a shorter throw or not) is like replacing one bad girlfriend with another one... she's nice at first, but will be just as much a b*tch as the first one eventually.

For an in-depth description of the problems with BMW's shifter design, please see this page:

UUC Ultimate Short Shifters reduce shift travel at least 35%, and are height-adjustable from stock height down to either .5" or .75" shorter (depending on which car you have).
