    e36 Bimmerworld race shifter

    mine has been in for sometime, i would like to get the shift action more towards driver. its placed about the middle of the opening but 3rd and 5th seem way over on pass side.
    wherever i put the base the shifter seems to point to passenger side.
    thinking about just putting the base far drivers side as i can?
    any pics off the base location? can't find any

    See Post #32 from my previous build thread. I don't really remember why, but my BW shifter was placed pretty far to the driver side.

    thanks for the link to your picture! ours look to sit the same now. i moved mine left far as i could and added rivnuts for ease.
    big worry was messing with gear selection if moved to far over off center, where i was. seems ok with test drive last night.

    I believe you're experiencing the infamous e36 5th gear lean which is made more obvious with a tall motorsports shifter.

    My car does the same thing and the fix is to drop the trans and replace the detent pins

    quick look this seems a 328 or M3 e36 issue?
    my shifting all gears seems more passenger friendly.
    could be my seat sides messing with my arm angle i noticed on last drive.
    i agree taller shifter will exaggerate things.
