A locking collar sits near the base of the shifter and requires only a twist before the height and throw can be adjusted to your liking. You don't even need to look at what you are doing; with with our unique design, you cannot over adjust the shifter. Go ahead and move it from top to bottom without damaging your transmission.
Precision Made Parts From High Quality Materials
You should never expect anything else from us. We make our parts here in the USA, and we make them with care. Hybrid designed and CNC machined from Stainless Steel, and 6061 Aluminum; it is guaranteed to be unbreakable. The kits for the 2007+ models come with machined 6061 aluminum bushings as well. Make the feel of each shift more crisp after you replace the rubber bushings with these perfectly machined replacements.
You CAN Use Your Stock Knob and Boot
Although the shifter is prepared for aftermarket M12 x 1.25 threaded shift knobs, the MINI stock knob fits perfectly with the INCLUDED knob adapter. This adapter will also allow you to fit any BMW/MINI Shift Knob. Without the adapter installed, the Craven Speed Short Shifter will also accept most aftermarket knobs. Many use the same standard; M12 x 1.25 thread as our available shift knob. The shifter can be adjusted with the faux-leather boot in place, just feel the mechanism and twist. Of course, it is much easier with one of our Shift Well Covers.
The Adjustable Short Shifter is ready for 2014 MINI hardtop's. Your shifter comes with stiff shifter bushings to replace the stock rubber ones, stiffening the shifter housing and reducing play.
Not Available for 2002 to Mid 2003 MINIs
The Adjustable Short Shifter is only available for MINIs with a production date of December 2003 or Newer. The production date is noted on the label of the inside door jamb on the drivers door. Unsure? You can pull up the plastic ring around the shift boot. If the main shift housing is black with a white retaining clip, your MINI was made in December 2003 or later, and the Adjustable Short Shifter will be compatible. If the housing is white with a grey retaining clip, your MINI was made before December 2003.
