I also would like to know. I've had ss in all my cars and the f30 needs one. The throws are long. The f30 has been out for over 2 years and I can't believe no one has made one yet.

I believe you and i don't have my car yet lol When I did my test drives I was surprised to see how short in height the shifter is. At first you would think the car comes with a short throw shifter but as soon as you start shifting you realize there is no short throw. I love manual cars. I don't see myself driving automatic even though I took a 335i x drive in auto to see what it is about and honestly it transmission did piss me off. Having said that I do not like full arm motion to shift. In all my past cars the first mod was to install short throw shifter. Wrist motion to shift is ideal. ok, fine maybe little elbow being involved is not so bad but I don't like to shift like I am driving a semi or tractor. I am not a farmer those long shifts are not needed. I've always wondered why cars stock come with such a long shift throws. Not to shift into the wrong gear? If no short throw shifts are available by the time I get my car I might go down the rabbit hole and try to manufacture me one. I know plenty of people that can CNC parts for me for low cost.
