Anything is a better price then the UUC kit.

But the custom parts and machining of UUC's kits is second to NONE.

You get what you pay for.

Looks like a MZ3 lever, polished. They already stated its a factory lever if you read between the lines...

Nothing wrong with factory parts, but again.. you get what you pay for.

i will onlhy use the uuc kit i have used about 4 or 5 in all the bmrs i have had and i have had never a major problem... I also used to probley install 1 a day at work and i have come a cross some problem but uu was always able to back there product up and help to fic the problem...

so basicly i am saying that if you want to be sure you are getting something that you will notice a huge diffrence and you will have a product that would last you forever....

Just use a MZ3 or Z4 3.0 lever. Cheaper, and great feel.

^ Z4 3.0 is just over $100 from dealer then you get bushings, clips ...

So its really the same, maybe a little bit cheaper, and Im curious to see how this would compare to it , maybe better? lol maybe not?

BMA Autoparts, in California. Call Patrick, ask for the Z4 short shift kit with all the parts to rebuild shifter, and for $60 USD + shipping you have everything you need.

Click 'contact us' in the top right corner. Ask for Patrick, tell him that Tomek told you to call. I'm a regular.

That's a good price. But I still say go with the best.UUC, BMP or BavAuto make kits like Jordan spoke of.

Beware of knock offs. You can easly take an old lever and weld a longer piece of metal below the ball and make your own.

The slop is in the linkage and bushings. Not the lever itself

Ryan, while getting the best is great, it's much better to save $150 and get something that works just fine. I ended up buying a new horizontal bar and rear bushing.
