BMW has been known for its relatively poor shifter feeling, even in today's high-performance M models; therefore, one of the most satisfying upgrades you can make to your BMW is to its factory shifter mechanism. The Rogue Engineering OCTANE Short Shift Kit represents years of experience and research; RE continues to design and build the best short-shift kits on the market.
The RE OCTANE features a CNC-machined 303 stainless steel lever, adding 150g more weight to the top of the shift lever—drastically improving the shifter feel—while maintaining a factory profile to accept any BMW shift knob. Additionally, since the lower shift lever and the main pivot ball are all 303 stainless steel, RE has gone a step further by allowing it to be adjustable so shifter throw/height can be tailored to the users' liking (within reason). The distance is pre-set by Rogue Engineering but can be modified by the user.
The stainless pivot ball not only offers the adjustability feature but, more importantly, offers extreme durability over the factory unit. When combined with the change to Delrin AF for the lower pivot bushings, a material proven to be very heat resistant (an important feature in this location), you're ensured a long-lasting product that will be smooth to operate over time regardless of driving condition.
