Hey berlow how is the AKG in the IX? Threw a z3 1.9 lever in mine but still not satisfied with the tightness.

It's amazing!
The throw is a little too short for my opinion. Definitely shorter than my CAE in my other car.

If you do go with the AKG in an IX, you have to grind a little off the bottom of where the shifter attaches to the selector rod and shim the shifter itself up from the tranny tunnel about 3mm.
Otherwise it will hit the transfer case.

I never realized the AKG bolts straight to the body and eliminates the shift support rod entirely.

Does it move around noticeably as the engine/trans move around on the mounts?

Or do you have your driveline poly/solid mounted?

I installed an x5 shift lever with my recent 5 speed swap.
Lever still has some bend in it. I bent it about halfway to straight from its original angle.


Here are some pics of the shifter throw (1st, N, 2nd)

Actually like it a lot, I like the throw and its not too notchy and gears are easy to find. Also I like that the shifter is close and I don't have to go reaching very far.

Anyone like the B&M shifter? Find one that came in car is excessively notchy and stiff. Spoiled as I have had the UUC for years in another car and like that.
