BMW Solid Short Shifter, Chassis Mount – E46
Our BMW E46 Stage II Racing Short Shifter is the original chassis / tunnel mounted short shifter for BMW!
Reliability through Simplicity – Our BMW E46 solid chassis mounted short shifter is engineered to be both simple and reliable – while providing the most precise shifts of any short shifter available. The original, two-piece design replaces the entire stock shifter assembly with a beautiful, precision CNC’d, billet aluminum tunnel mounted racing shifter. In addition, it eliminates the stock plastic ball & cup design in favor of a built-in, high precision race-spec spherical bearing. This race-bred, chassis mounted BMW E46 short shifter is designed for lifetime use and is the first and only shifter fully serviceable and rebuildable.
At only 0.86kg, it’s as light as it is strong and with the shortest throw available – it’s all business. Our design eliminates all movement found in the stock shifter assembly for the most precise, solid shifter travel possible – even in turns and under load. And unlike other shifters which use snap-on shift knobs, our BMW E46 tunnel mounted short shifter features a secure, fully-threaded shift knob mounting. Furthermore, the raised shift lever position provides comfortable ergonomic shifting under quick, repetitive conditions – because every shift counts.
Both the base plate and housing cup are CNC-machined from a single piece of extruded 6061-T6 aluminum, while the shift lever is CNC’d from a single piece of 7075-T6 aluminum. Unlike other cheap knockoffs, our solid racing short shifter contains no welds and the entire assembly is precision engineered to be a direct bolt-on to your E46 chassis – eliminating the need to align and drill holes into your car for installation.
Our BMW E46 solid chassis mounted short shifter is fully warrantied for as long as you own the car in which it was originally, properly installed. Upgraded transmission mounts are required due to its solid-mount design. We also recommend you upgrade the stock selector rod to our Double Shear Selector Rod to eliminate selector rod movement. A tall (black) Delrin, or short (white) Delrin shift knob is included (please select below).
