which short shifter kit?

Hi,
thinking of getting a short shifter kit for my e92 m3. been looking around and see there's only UUC or AA available in the market. Any comments on which is better? Any other brands out there? Thanks

Rogue or nothing.
Replacing ZHP knob works pretty good too.

ZHP knob will do alot to make the shift feel better.

I recommend performing the ZHP knob intsall, clutch spring removal and shortened clutch stop first. Then purchase the Rogue shift kit if still not satisfied. All discernible improvements in my experience.

I should inform you that the AA SSK is the same SSK from UUC just private labeled from UUC. I have a UUC and I like it a lot.

UUC + DSSR + ZHP knob and I'm in love.
It's all opinionated.

There are some original m shift knobs out there, illuminated, that should make things a lot shorter. I don't really know what the hell was BMW thinking when they installed this tractor shift knob on a m3.

The UUC + DSSR is garbage. Do a search and you'll see what I mean.

i have the rouge octane kit with the zhp illuminated short shift knob and it's amazing. i will say you will get a small vibration noise in the cabin when shift while the car is warm. i fixed mine by pouring 2 1oz tubes of synthetic silicone in the rubber shift boot and by clamping a metal ring clamp around the middle section of the shifter.
