Active Autowerke S1 Short Shifter | E39A (520,523,525td/tds,540,M5)
Active Autowerke has teamed up with UUC Motorwerks to develop the Active Autowerke S1Short Shifter Kit for your BMW. When developing this system our main goal was improving upon BMW's shifter assembly to increase the precision and smoothness of the overall operation.
The Active Autowerke S1 E9X 335 Short shifter kit creates up to a 30% shorter throw than stock. The kit features a completely self-contained and self-adjusting primary pivot bearing assembly
that retains lubrication, keeping out that grit that 'roughens' a shifter feel over time, and positions the shifter assembly perfectly for ideal linkage alignment. The S1shifter is also built with a new full-length internal vibration absorbing absorbing material that surpasses any OE or aftermarket material for longevity and retention of design specifications.
Installation of the unit is a direct replacement of the factory unit and does not require any cutting. The upper section is alloy steel, acoustically isolated from the lower section. For custom-tailored ergonomic, the height adjustable design reaises or lowers top section. This allows changes from original height to as much as 3/4" lower. The single piece T-304 stainless steel lever is the strongest shifter available with an integral pivot ball. All shifters in the S1Series are compatible with Original BMW shift knobs including illuminated knobs.
Precise engineering resulted in a less notchy feel during shifts when compared to the factory system. The Active Autowerke S1 Shifter Kits are also available with our optional weighted Active Autowerke Signature knob.
