This customer purchased the item at our site.
This is a solid product! Drops the knob a respectable "1.5-2" as stated by another review. Solid bushing and hardware included are top notch.

Honestly the best short shifter on a budget. I installed it with new shift cables, feeling is super crisp. I highly recommend it!

Advantages: Includes all necessary hardware.
Does not feel cheap.
Significant reduction in shift throw.
Quality product
Can use factory shift knob.

Disadvantages: I tried using my factory shift knob, and it sort of works. The groove on the short shifter for the original knob wasn't machined too well, so the fitment was sloppy. You will pull the knob off easily during normal driving, buy an aftermarket nob!

First, let me just say this is a really good shifter. Lowers the knob about 1.5"-2", and is nice and tight.

Second, installation is a b***h and a half after you get the shift housing out. Be patient, some of the parts are not replaceable by themselves.

Finally: overall, I love driving the car with this. I just need to get the Craven shift knob and it'll be perfect! I highly recommend this part if you have an 02-03 Cooper, and are on a budget. Very satisfied.

Also, don't choose USPS shipping. Box was delivered with one end rubber banded closed and two days late.

Details

Once upon a time, BM, Alta, Cravenspeed and a few others made a short shift kit for the 02-03 but slow sales and low demand killed the product....the differences between the 02-03 model and the 04-06 and beyond is different enough that if you want a true short shift kit, this is basically the only option. It's basically a copy of the original BM shifter at a lower price. It does the job and is well made.

The 02-03 Megan Racing Short Shift Kit is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:


Gen1 MINI:

R50 MINI Cooper Hatchback: 2002, 2003

R53-S MINI Cooper S Hatchback: 2002, 2003

These are the perfect addition to my JCW. I have a red over black JCW with the Xenon head lamps & black housings. These are the perfect way to tone down the brash bright red of the tail/brake lamp housings to match the front lamps. Not only do you eliminate the chrome but the housing itself is black thus darkening the appearance of the entire assembly. I would say these should be flying off the shelf but i don't want everyone to have a MINI that looks as good as mine.

Hi Aaron, I recently ordered the Stage 2 brake upgrade kit and a set of Brisk plugs and the IT Performance coils for my 07 Cooper S. The brake package is superb! no more vague, mushy feel. Now the braking is very direct, very progressive, shorter stops, much less dust..could not be happier! And installing the Brisk plus and IT Performance coils made a very noticeable difference in engine response and power delivery..definitely worth the money!
Every product I have bought from Outmotoring has been of the highest quality and has enhanced the performance of my car. And your customer service is outstanding, second to none. Keep up the great work and thanks for helping me in my buildup to my little bulldog! :-)

I was a little disappointed after speaking with Aaron today about my order. I placed an order for two items and was sent an email with a tracking number. Got one of the items today as tracking number stated. There was a note in the package that the other item was being shipped from another warehouse. There was no mention of this when I received the email with the tracking number. Then when I contacted Outmotoring about this. Aaron told me he would try and get me a tracking number for the other item.Then could not verify when the item would ship. Would have been nice to know that it would be shipping from some where else in the original email.
