BMW 6 Series (E24) Short Shifters
Eliminating harsh angles that the BMW 6 Series (E24) shifter is forced to go through during the course of shifting between gears can allow a driver to make smoother, more rapid gear shifts. Racers and serious performance drivers tend to prefer the quickness and reliability provided by BMW 6 Series (E24) short shifters, as even split seconds spent on nonessential maneuvers can make the difference between a winning race and a losing one. Effective BMW 6 Series (E24) short shifters still activate each gear in its entirety when shifting, but transition between gears more rapidly than expected from stock BMW 6 Series (E24) shifts, making this a popular, and useful, upgrade.
