The May issue of Roundel talked about BMW's own performance parts and I called my local dealer and asked about the Short throw shifter and the 18in wheels. The short throw shifter was about 350.00 installed. Has anyone bought the shifter from BMW? is it better than any other after market product available? They said it would only take about an hour to put in and I could buy for 275.00 if I want to install myself. (By the way, the 18inch wheel with michelan tires installed were about 4000.00, ouch) Has anyone bought the BMW short throw? are you happy with it?
