My dealer quotes 3 hrs and told me they would not warranty an "aftermarket part" even though I explained it was bmw made. Guess i will find an indy shop or do it myself.

I thought the performance SSK won't fit the 1M. Thats why I bought the Rouge Engineering one. It is coming in tomorrow.

Should I return it, and get the BMW performance one?

It is not the full N54 BMW SSK, just the lever part. Will work on any MT N55 E8x (incl 1M)

+1. Best thing is.... that shift lever is less than $120. You should also order a new bushing and some C-clips, but those are cheap.

+1 Definitely suggest changing the bushing. One of the best mods ever

Let me see if I understand this correctly. If one would have either a stock N54 or N55/1M transmission, when mounting the SSK lever, you'd end up with a 55mm throw, correct?

Yes, I think so. Definitely on a N54. No one with a 1M has taken any measurements. They just have said taht the N54 Perf SSK lever works on a N55/1M - and it feels good. I would like to know the throw in mm's though, for a 1M with a Perf SSK lever.

THX, as my question suggests, the PSSK lever just made my mod list. That list is not in a hurry, but once I get to it, i'll take some apple2apple before/after measurements of the 1M PSSK difference in throw (and height).

Just had the short shift lever installed on my 1m. Absolutely fantastic, cheap mod! 80 in parts and 200 for install. Shift is great. Short and direct. Not overly notchy. Ian is right, should have dont it sooner.

I fitted the ssk to my coupe 2 weeks ago in about 15 minutes. It can be fitted from the top just removing the gaiter and rubber grommet then a pair of pliers to remove the bush and a screwdriver for the clip!

Wow, impressive. Everyone said you had to pull mids and driveshaft. oh well, 200 bucks also included maddad midpipe install. Still better than 600 and 3 week wait at stealership.
