BMW E30 180MM DSSR SELECTOR ROD - 325E 1986+ 25111221054
Introducing the Garagistic E30 180mm DSSR for your E30 325E or 325ES 06/1986+ (not for 325i/325is/325iX, or 318 models). To start off, what is a DSSR you ask? Well, it stands for dual shear selector rod, it's a selector rod that will spread the torsional force on both sides of the selector rod instead of the OEM piece which connects from one side only. Based on the concept of the E30 M3 DTM cars of legend! Going to a DSSR in your E30 will mean less play in the shifter, (decreases side to side motion). This means a more precise and smooth shift every time. Now to the details.
The stainless shift rod is made of 304 stainless right here in our shop in Westminster CA, USA. Tig welded stainless for the ultimate in durability, fit and finish and as always is backed by our Garagistic NO QUESTIONS ASKED Lifetime Warranty. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the product you can send it back for a full refund. Please note: Compatible with OEM style shiftier only (some shifters will need to be slightly filed down to fit). 1984 - 1988 models must change to later BMW selector joint part# 25117503525

Step 1: With a flat head screwdriver remove the locking clip by pushing on the inside lip of the clip to slide it off the selector rod on the shifter side on selector joint side.
Step 2: Wiggle and pull the selector rod until it's free on both ends. Pay attention to the bends of the selector rod and how it came off as it will be your guide on how to install the DSSR in the proper direction.
Step 3: Grab your garagistic DSSR and starting with the selector joint side first line up the holes on the DSSR with the selector joint. It should be a tight fit but if its too tight open the tabs a bit till you achieve proper fitment. Once aligned slide the provided pins in with a washer on each side followed by the c-clip to lock it in. Repeat on the shifter side.
Notice: If you upgraded to a Z3 shifter you will have to shave down the sides of the shifter for the DSSR to fit
