You guys might think about a short shift kit. It makes a world of difference in your cars, it feels even more sporty. understeer.com is probable the best deal, it runs about $75 and it is an easy install. Or you can pick up a used e46 M3 shifter from someone who has installed an after market short shift kit. The used shifter is a great mod at a reasonable price. I think I saw someone selling theirs on e46fanatics.com. I picked up a used M5 shifter for my car for $20 plus shipping. I was being a cheapskate and didn't want to buy an aftermarket kit because I am saving for my wedding.
Good luck, keep modding and great cars.
