I respectfully disagree.... While the 128i shifts nice, I would hardley call it short or race inspired. Now, if you want a nice, short, race inspired gear box from a factory shifter, drive an S2000.... Best stock shifter in the biz. Although the S2000 is tourqless, I miss that car so much just for the feeling it gives you when driving it.
My previous car was an AP1 s2000, and I completely agree with this comment.

S2k gearbox was modeled after the NSX, which in turn was modeled after Hondas indycar gearboxes. S2k is the best gearbox I have experienced this side of Porsche.
