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.

From here on, MINI has consistently released the Cooper and Cooper S
versions of each model under the same R series designations. The 2nd Gen MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hatchback maintain a few Gen 1 features, including two doors, a rear hatch, and front and rear seats. However, it branches into a re-engineered platform incorporating many stylistic and engineering changes. The use of a new engine makes the Gen 2 more cost-effective and fuel-efficient.
