I actually don't mind the long throw action, just wish the shifter itself didn't feel so loose (must be those plastic bushings wearing down on the linkage), just was wondering if anyone ever replaced their bushings to try and make it feel "factory tight" again.

and GmoneyLI, X5 and X3 only came in stick in the 3.0 engine just FYI. the X3's were 6-speed only!
