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



R-Fifty WHAT?? Confused about what model MINI you have? We’re here to help. Check this out for more information.

Received my order today Fri Mar 5, as usual excellent service with an excellent product,liked the idea that you guys sold the grill as a 2 piece rather than having to order two seperate pieces,like some of the other suppliers, will be dealing with you again in the future.Cheers Bill

If you don't mind destroying the OEM shifter boot then this thing is a snap (literally and figuratively) to install. You won't need to disassemble the center console. I just broke it off with a screwdriver. The new well pops right in with no tools. Couldn't be simpler.

After many years I am finally in $$ position to own my "dream" car AND do what I want with it. Not Porsche, not Ferrari. My MINI.

I'm learning about my options for my "07 S Convertible. It's nice to have help/support from OUTMOTORING.

I've survived my Harleys and my sailboats; now it's time for my love-lust since HighSchool, Thanks for your help and support.

(And I don't need anyone else's permission.)

See? Wait long enough and it's yours.
