2013 SSK

Just want to verify since it doesn't come up on the BMW U.S.A web site for the 2013 model year. Does the 25110444655 SSK fit the 2013 128i? Probably a dumb question as why would they have changed anything.

Yes should be fine.

What do you plan to do with your stock lever?

Um, set it on the shelf in the garage? Why?

I might need a "new" one in 6 weeks or less.
Updating my stock parts, too much play side to side

Ah! Well, my car is still somewhere in the Atlantic, so perhaps we should speak in a few weeks. Port Hueneme ~27 Feb, and Norcal ~a week later. Of course I still need to pull the trigger on the SSK, too...

Order placed for SSK. Take-offs yours for the cost of shipping. Car is off the coast of Puerto Rico. ETA my house first week of March. No guarantees as to a specific date I'll make the swap.

Not quite, the lever can wear over time on the ball and at the bottom of the lever where it joins the shift arm.

I think you should use the stock shifter before you decide 100% on the SSK, and then live with the SSK for a week or so. Once you are certain we can do this.
