UUC Evo III short shift kit E46

Has anyone installed this shifter in a E46?

Your thoughts? Did you compare to Rogue product?

Hi Suicide. Does the shifter get "notchier" from stock? What differences from stock do you notice? I should probably give it a try before I buy. I would also like to try the Rogue product as well.

I'm baby sitting my buddies Acura RSX Type S for 3 weeks as he is travelling in Asia. I I luv the close gears shifts on the car. I drive a 2002 325i. What kind of costs would I be looking at? Does it void your BMW warranty? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

They totally suck at the beginning, stiff as hell. After about 500KM they loosen up nicely but will require more effort than stock. Its a good mod, but the stock shifer is nice aswell.

I thought the beginning was the best!!
That was the time when the shifts felt the shortest!

The beginning, the shifter is extremely stiff and un responsive.
