God damn it!!!!

I’ve got no plans to doing anything more to my 125i (apart from a proper remap) and I bloody read this!!!!

Very tempted to order all this right now as the full kit is around £100, is this cheap?

How easy a job is this to do? Any links to a how to?

Or is a SSK instal the same as any other? As there’s loads on You Tube.

* edit - £90 for all 3 parts.
Half hour job, fiddly but not difficult at all. Same as this:

I’d also recommend the gearknob fitted in the above guide, much nicer than stock.

Yeah thanks Swanny, I’ve always wondered if this would work with the 125i as I need all the driving help I can get!!

Parts ordered and will report back once it’s fitted. Will probably get my camber plates done at the same time in the New Year.

Hmmm that makes my purchase pretty lame then lol

I paid £90 without the gear knob. Gear knob has to be worth £45 so looks like you got a great deal Jospeh.

Just a quick update.

The shifter I ordered before Xmas hasn’t arrived so I cancelled it and got a refund and ordered elsewhere, and saved £10!!!

Should be here soon.
