What SSK are you using?

I am looking for an SSK for my 1M. I had the BMW Performance SSK in my N54 135i and it was one of the best SSK's i have ever had so I am looking for something similar.

So far I have looked at the Rogue Engineering and UUC kits but open to other brands, it would be great to get any experience you have using one in your 1M.

Why are you considering a short shift kit? You may want to start with the clutch delay value before you attempt to shorten the throw length. A SSK without the CDV may lead to premature clutch wear.

I'm using Rogue Engineering.. works perfect!

But as Amnizu said, do the CDV too. A no cost dyi upgrade that will change the car!

CDV first, clutch stop too. One is super cheap the other free.

I snagged a UUC when they got super cheap for about 45 minutes one day (I think someone made a mistake!!) and I don't regret it.

It is a very nicely made product.

Mine is on an N55 135i though so YMMV but I am sure it is the same fine quality.

I would consider the UCP (Ultimate Clutch Pedal) and remove the small restrictor in the CDV. Had a clutch stop and removed it, that it was pointless seeing the engagement is near the end of the stroke.

RE for street/track

RTD for track

I have the BMW Performance SSK in my 135i and LOVE it too. I realize you have a 1M. BMW no longer sells the SSK(135i), but they do still sell the SSK for the 128i. You only really need the shift lever & and a new plastic bearing.

In my e39 540i 6speed, I have an e60 550i shift lever. And believe it or not I like that shifter even better than my Perf SSK in my 135i. You could order the e60 shift lever - but you will need to bend it a little bit to have the shift lever fall closer to your hand. I think it would be worth the effort. Just use some sockets in a vise and bend the lever. There are plenty of YT videos on how to do that.

CDV delete is also a MUST do!!

Good Luck,
Dackel

Ordered the 128i SSK Lever, bearing/bushing, and a couple clips for my N55 135i.
Even that lever shows discontinued on a bunch of sites, but not where I found it.
Hopefully all will work out.
(e60 550i lever was $20 more. Plus, what if I bend it wrong?)
Family on vacation next week, while I've got to go to work. So should have a free evening to install.

Sorry - not for 1M. But this is the closest thread I could find, and is directly related to Dackel's post above.

Clutch stop on the E46 or E92 is simple and effective by changing to an elevator bolt. Anyone solve the Clutch stop for the 1M without clamping to the clutch pedal? I would like to shorten by 1-1.5"

Going to revisit this since 25110434217 is EOL.

I *think* the F20/F22/F87 N55 and B58 cars use the same linkage. Has anyone tried a shifter from those?
From a quick look on realoem...
M140i/M240i: 25117596703
M135i/M235i/M2: 25112284894

Apparently the F2x N55 part is the same as F8x M3/4.

Question is what are the throws like in these cars and what comes with M140i Performance Edition (they get a boot and knob for sure).

I got Auto Solutions to make their first 1M SSK. I've had it in the car 6 months and it's brilliant.
