AA Sig Exhaust and Shifter

Just installed the AA Sig Exhaust and Shifter, took about 3 hours including clean-up....everything was bolt on and fairly straightforward...I was able to use a lift which made all the difference.

The shifter sits at about the same height as stock, but wow, what a difference...no more butter shifting...it's a much more confident/precise shift. Definitley a worthwhile improvement...

As far as the AA Sig Exhaust...why did I wait so long for this mod?!?! Minor, minor, minor drone at about 1800-1900 rpms, but it's hardly a concern (no concern for me at all!!) when you hear the melody at every other interval...I can't stop myself from rowing through the gears just to hear the sound....I can't get enough of it!!!

Hands down, the best two mods for the car....if you don't do anything else...get the AA exhaust and shifter!!!!

Congrats on the AA exhaust, time for some x-pipe to give you the extreme sound and performance out of your M3. Off course, don't forget the AA software.

Do you mean the Short Shift Kit? Does it solve the clunky shifting from 1st to 2nd in your 6MT? Im considering a SSK if it helps...

Thanks, x-pipe and software are definitely part of the plan before spring...

I wouldn't call it a Short Shift Kit, it's about the same as the stock height, but it's much more solid/precise...and no issues with buzzing or vibration.
