The link I used is a few pages back in this thread. Thanks to Davintosh.

How to: Service your transmission shift pins.

You dont need the drift set. I just used longreach sockets and bolts.
Did you replace anything else while you had the trans out? How'd your clutch look (how many miles?) I'd think the pivot pin and throwout bearing would be a relatively cheap pieces that would be easily replaced; with my luck I'd think I could get away without replacing it, then it would start squealing two days after getting it back together.

UUC Short Shift Kit

I called UUC and inquired about their performance clutch kit for the 6-speed.....more on that later.....

I also asked about the short shift kit for our manual e53's. The fellow I talked to said they are ready to start production, and are just waiting for pre-orders to fill up more. If you are interested in thier Evo-3 shifter including the DSSR selector rod go here: http://store.uucmotorwerks.com/categ...bmw+x5&x=9&y=7.

They don't charge till they ship out. My "dirty toilet plunger rowing" days are nearing an end. (Okay, its an exaggeration but you get my point.)

I've been wondering whether anyone has tried using original equipment shifters from other BMW models on their X5s; I know that for the e28, e32 & e34, the shifter from the Z3 is a popular alternative to aftermarket short-shifters. Provided the pivot ball and bushing where the shift rod connects to the selector rod is the same, I don't see why it shouldn't work. E28 Shifter FAQ - MyE28.com

Any idea on the difficulty of the install? DIY? Estimated hours at a shop? Would the whole center console need to removed? Just wondering as I would be very interested if this DIYable or minimal hours at a shop.. Either way it is exciting to finally see a mod / add-on for the e53!!

I was thinking maybe the clutch delay valve but wanted some feedback.

Thanks!

YES.
And it pisses me off. It has nothing to do with the CDV. Its the stupid fly by wire throttle control and I havnt been able to find any way of fixing it.
