Question UUC Double Shear Selector Rod for Z3 2.3

Anyone install a DSSR along side a short shifter kit in a BMW Z3?

everywhere I look I always see this

"rod ONLY fits Z3 2.8, Z3 3.0, and M Roadster/Coupe with 5 speed manual transmission"

But I cant find any confermation that the DSSR will fit a 99 Z3 2.3

thanks!

I believe it will fit. As far as I know, all Z3s use the same shifter rod.
In my opinion, unless you are trying to lighten your car by reducing your wallet size, there is no reason to buy this part. The original part is more than strong enough for the job and this part does not solve any problem. There have also been problems in the past with the UUC DSSRs not having the required twist, resulting in the shifter being "parked" at the far side of the pattern. That was later corrected, but there are a lot of old ones out there.
Your time and money would be better spend on replacing the shifter wear items (described in a Pelican Parts article), replacing the shift pins, and using good transmission oil to reduce the notchiness in the shifting.

Thanks for the input Blacklane, I have been thninkg I would save the cash and pick up a weighted shift knob instead and use the money save to pick up replacement shift pins and bushings. To complement my SSK
