B&M shifter is a 3spd ist it?.. i dont think it would work.
ther may be other shifter styles that would suit the 4spd.

You just need to get a B&M, TCI or Hurst shifter for a 4 speed auto. There are plenty around. Any good auto shop will be able to fit it for you.
It wont make the car any faster, or make the box shift any better, and the reverse lock out feature will give you the s**t in a daily driver, but if that's what floats your boat, go for it. Maybe see if you can have a drive of a car with one first. 8-)

Manual ratchet shift and electronic auto box do not go together.

You will need to be running a C4, FMX or similar style box. B&M shifters are not compatable with BW boxes. While you may be able to fit it and change all your sensors it will not make any physical difference.

The equivilent of a B&M shifter for your box is a shift kit. but thats only to firm up shifts. You would use a megashifter of a manualise C4 or powerglide or similar.

One thing is for sure...the reverse lock-out feature, is a pain in the a5re for a daily driver.
Yes, they are made for a 4sp auto, but being a ratchet shifter on an electronically controlled auto.....well,.....they don't always shift when you want it to.

Couldn't have said it better myself, I dont suggest getting one..
Spend the money on a manual conversion instead.

The majority of the B&M 3spd shifters can be convertered to 4spd with the added 4spd gate plate.I fitted a turbo700 4spd auto with a injected 5L into a hz tonner and fitted a pro stick B&M shifter,all i had to do was change over the gate plates to suit the gearbox.The turbo700 box was shiftkitted and had the usual upgrades to make a shifter more fun to drive.
