The shifter linkage on my 5 Spd. 528i is quite "rubbery" especially going into reverse, and sometimes into 5 th gear. Does anyone have any experience with any of the aftermarket shift linkage kits? Alternately, I was told that it is possible to install the linkage from another BMW with similar transmission. My problem isn't so much with the length of the throws, but with the rubbery feel. It feels like some bushing are worn out or broken in there. However, shorter throws would be a nice upgrade.
