I actually bought them thru Renn Spec, before Bimmersport was an AA dealer (or at least before I knew they were). I would try them first since they are local and compare prices.
SSK is definitely a huge improvement - I would say a lot less effort (N to 1st for example seems like its right there). Also I would say it reduces the nothiness of the stock shifter. This is the most noticeable mod I have done so far as far as real "feel" goes!

I saw you as I was waiting to make the left on Derry - literally just missed you.

Spotted... Jerez Black E92 M3 on the DVP southbound, he got on at Bayview/Bloor and pulled in behind me, we mixed it up a bit before both getting off at Richmond. Good times, too bad he didn't get on earlier and there couldn't have been less traffic.

Then an Aston Martin Vantage vert passed me on the QEW on the way home. He had the top down as well, but I had to keep up until he exited at Erin Mills. The Vantage is a gorgeous car.
Indeed

Spotted the same car I had mentioned above but this time with his summer rims on... it was on Denison around the corner from my work so had to swing through the lot and take a pic. If the owner is on here I hope he doesn't mind... crappy iPhone pic as usual but the car looks sweet in person.

I believe that's Dunhill's car.

Definitely not me, interesting that there is another MR E90 in the GTA though... based on this board I thought I was the only one.

I am guessing it must be the one that was in the showroom when I bought mine. Equipped exactly the same as mine, but MR.

Wonder why there are a few cars in town missing the cover? I wouldn't think the part would fall off easily.

Perhaps they are upgrading the the tow hook option from tightie's car...

Spotted another Melbourne Red E90 M3 today, on the eastbound Gardiner around the Kingsway at about 6pm. I was headed in the opposite direction so didn't get much of a chance to check it out though... wonder if its the same one Jaypod spotted earlier this week.

Didnt see the driver - I assume its probably a demo vehicle since no need for a heavily armoured car here and it had the website listed on the windshield. It is more than likely the one pictured as they are built just north of the city! Very cool though!

Crazy. Good investment if you think the end of the world is near.
