As for the notchness... yea... mine is a little notchy still in 1st and 2nd gears. Even though I just changed my trans fluid... I am thinking about switching to Red Line's D4-AFT... bc it is known to make the trans shoft lighter/smoother. Atleast that is what I felt with my old e36 when I switched to it.

+1 on the SSK... I had mine done yesterday and it's night and day! The shifting is a lot snick-snickier than it was before, and it's just more fun to drive.

Seems like a 30-40% reduction in throw. I did not swap out the knob and boot; I ordered only the 'hard' parts. Dackel thanks for your advice on the SSK; it's advice worth taking, OP.
