This is a dual-shear-selector rod for your 5-speed E30 (06/1986-1992). Similar to what was used on the E30 M3 DTM cars, this selector rod offers a tighter shift by spreading the torsional force on both sides of the selector rod. A tighter selector rod means a tighter shift lever, eliminating slop found in the stock single-shear selector rod.
While there are a few dual shear selector rods on the market, ours is a simple but effective design without needlessly high manufacturing costs. Made right here in Southern California from Stainless Steel (NOT soft threaded aluminum). Not compatible with engine swaps.
**Needs to be installed with an 09/89 and later selector rod joint. (BMW# 25 11 7 503 525)
***Please note, if you are installing this in a car with an OEM shift lever, you will need to sand/shave-down the bottom shifter bushing.
