Rogue Engineering idea of a short shift kit is not substituting levers in place of factory ones just because ""they fit"".  Throughout the 80s until recently, BMW was notorious for using only a few specific shifter levers for their manual transmission vehicles.  For other companies, making just a few ""replacement levers"" and offering them in place of those factory part numbers was an easy way of calling it a short shift kit.  Unfortunately, for those companies, BMW started using many different part numbers making it more difficult to just ""swap in a lever"".

Rogue Engineering only develops it's short shift kit with test vehicles in their facility, testing numerous prototypes, offering others to test it before settling on it's final design.  We feel that this old school, real world testing is the best way when modifying OEM ergonomic, sensory-based controls.

Customer Testimonial

Wow! This is all I can say, I ordered a Rogue Engineering Short Shift Kit for my E90 335i and it is a 100 times better then oem.  Shifting is smooth as butter and never any notchiness.  A definite two thumbs up! I would recommend it to everyone.

Easy Installation
The Rogue Engineering OCTANE WSR is easy to install, even for the novice mechanic.  Since the OCTANE WSR is included with most OCTANE SSK, you simply install it when you install the OCTANE SSK!  There is no ""universal"" WSR since each is engineered for specific applications.

The Rogue Engineering OCTANE short shift kit comes complete with all necessary parts for a professional or do-it-yourself install.  Installation times will vary with experience and available resources (access to the underside of the vehicle is required.

Parts that are included with the kit are:

  • Rogue Engineering OCTANE Short Shifter Lever
  • Rogue Engineering OCTANE Weighted Selector Rod (not all models)
  • Rogue Engineering Shifter Carrier with Pivot Relocation Adapter (not all models)
  • Rogue Engineering Delrin Carrier Bushings (not all models)
  • Factory replacement washers, clips and grease

Please note that our OCTANE short shift kits are complete kits.  All OCTANE short shift kits include OCTANE specific WSRs (which are different from our factory replacement versions) unless otherwise noted.  There are no additional bushings or bearings to buy to inflate an artificially low price point.  The prices below reflect a kit with all required parts from our research at Rogue Engineering.
