E46 328 AND 330 EARLY DSSR SELECTOR ROD - 25111434116
Introducing the Garagistic E46 Early 328 & 330 DSSR. This DSSR is meant for BMW E46 models that have BMW OEM selector rod part number 25111434116. E46 328 and 330 modes UP TO 03/2003.
So what is a DSSR?
DSSR stands for Double Shear Selector Rod. A DSSR will spread the torsional force on both sides of the selector rod connection instead of the OEM design which connects from only one side. What this means is a more precise and smooth shift every time by eliminating slop and play. This concept was pioneered in the legendary E30 DTM cars and still holds its merit today!
Now to the details. Our DSSR is stainless steel construction and TIG welded right here in sunny CA, USA. Reduced play, easier shifting, all these details add up to help make a better shifter feel and experience.
Please note: Confirmed compatibility with OEM style shifter only (some shifters will need to be slightly filed down to fit). May also work with some aftermarket shifters.

HOW TO BEND YOUR DSSR
If your OEM selector rod has a bend, you may need to replicate that bend for proper fitment in your E46. This process is very straightforward and all you need is a vice and some sockets.
Arrange your sockets as shown in the photos below with the larger socket on the bottom. Carefully and slowly tighten your vice until you nearly match the bend in the stock selector rod.
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 its 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
