: Hi,

: I think that I read here that the best short shifter is the BL/SS? Is this correct? Is this the one used most by fellow BMW onwers?

: Thanks in advance!

I have a 1989 535i with the BL/SS
kit, ERK and delrin bushings. It has definitely gotten better in the 2 months I've had it. As I said in an earlier post, I think it is great out in the country, but I think a 48% reduction might be a little much for a daily driver /commuting car. I love having it.
I'll bet it's fantastic in a later model that has a smoother shifting gearbox than than a car as old as mine.
