Why would you suggest a shift kit that messes up the E36 ergonomics by putting the shifter too low?

Ron's kit is designed for the Z3. Installation in the M3 results in a shifter too low, I've tried it.

Remember, the M3 GT 6-speed and Porsche 911 GT1 use a shifter that is taller. There's no point in shortenting your shift time if it's harder and longer to reach the short lever.

And not only that, UUC is the only BMW short shifter to use cartridge bearings in the lower pivot for smoother and lower (~ 1lb) effort.

: I would suggest a Ron Stygar Short Shift kit.

: He will sell you exactly what you need for a lower price than UUC.

: You wont be disappointed.

: Ask around.

: : I hear everyone talking about a SS kit from UUC. Which one is the one that is such a good bang for the buck?
: : And where could I get it installed if I ordered one?
