Introducing the Garagistic E30 187mm DSSR for your 1984-1991 325i or 325is (not for 325/325e/325iX, 318 models but those are coming soon). To start off, what is a DSSR you ask? Well it stands for double 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.
Got a setup that's a little different than OEM? You could always get the "Weld it yourself" Dssr found here.
Please note: If you have a pre 8/89 E30 with selector joint part# 25117501309, you will need to change to BMW selector joint part# 25117503525 (8/89 Forward) or the Garagistic Standard Selector Joint.

It's a really good idea to change your transmission fluid while you are down there. We recommend this fluid: https://amzn.to/41KYOnn . One of these is also helpful when your doing it: https://amzn.to/3N3piN2
Must change to later BMW selector joint part# 25117503525. The factory vibration damper must be removed for proper clearance around the driveshaft flex coupler (guibo).
EVERY E30 DSSR KIT INCLUDES
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 it's 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
