This is our complete E46 dual oval shifter bushing rebuild kit designed specifically for the late model BMW E46 330 and similar chassis with a 6-speed transmission. Pairs great with our Supreme Shifter found here.
This kit replaces all of the maintenance items in the factor shifter assembly needed to make it feel fresh again. Our Garagistic Delrin or Aluminum front carrier bushings replace the original rubber bushings (which not only had a lot of "give" but are usually neglected and degrade over time). The rear poly bushing will replace the very soft OEM which is a culprit for a mushy shifter feel and is retrofitted into the thin factory metal housing for reinstallation. When replaced together, these bushings eliminate any side-to-side movement of the aluminum shift carrier. These shifter bushings fit at the front and rear of the aluminum carrier and will not increase vibration or harshness while still improving shifter feel. For best results, we recommend replacing the factory selector joint found on the end of the transmission (25117580281) and upgrading the selector rod to a DSSR.
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
