I've driven a 335, so I know what everyone means when they say it has a rubbery feel, but its not really a bad thing. The throws in the 335 were a lot shorter than I had expected, but there's no harm in making them even shorter. Also, the weight of a new knob does wonders for the amount of effort it takes to shift. I can literally throw my knob from first and it'll click into 2nd. I plan on buying UUC's SSK for the M3 when they develop one and keeping my weighted knob and putting it in the M.
I've heard the weighted knob can cause transmission wear? Like the old advice of not resting your hand on the knob when you drive because you cause some force on the linkage that is transmitted to the transmission?
