    Best Short Shifter for 87 325IS

    Hello, i have been looking through the forums all day.

    What i can collect is that i am looking to get a Z3 1.9 shifter for my 87 325IS

    is this the best option? If not whats better.

    What other bushings / wearable parts should be replaced?

    Also do i have to bend the bar in order to fit the Z3 1.9 shifter in?

    I know this is repetitive from all the other posts just want to make sure i get it right.

    I have the Z4 2.5 in my '87 and love it.

      I have the z3 1.9 in mine. I do like it but I would have preferred the shifter it self to be a little longer. if you could find a stock height shifter with a short throw to me that would be perfect.

        with a IE DSSR and LOVE it. You'll need to figure out a new way to thread your revers light wire though.

            I've heard this is what the E60 shifter does. There's a member on Bf.c who did it and enjoyed it, and I'll probably go that route when I decide it's time.
