The "rubbery" feel is hard to properly describe IMHO. First and foremost is that rubbery does NOT mean sloppy. Throws are short and precise and the gates are exactly where you intuitively expect them with no vagueness whatsoever. I really like the feel of the M3 shifter. Prior to delivery I had planned to get an SSK but I see no need for one now that that I have the car. In fact, I can't imagine that shorter throws would be anything but bad as the stock setup is about as short as possible (without the effort level going up). My only complaint (and I may get used to it) is that the shifter feels a couple of inches too far away for my liking
