Motorsport Racing Short Shifter – Stage II Aluminum (BMW E46)
Motorsport Racing Short Shifter – Stage II Aluminum for BMW E46. The ultimate short shifter specifically designed for your BMW E46 race / track car!
Reliability through Simplicity – our CAD/CAM designed racing shifter is engineered to be simple and reliable, all while providing the most precise shifts of any shifter available. Our two-piece design replaces the entire stock assembly with a beautiful, precision CNC crafted billet aluminum racing shifter – which also eliminates the stock ball and cup design in favor of a built-in, high-precision, race-spec ball bearing. This race-bred shifter is designed for lifetime use and is the first and only one with fully serviceable with replaceable parts.
At only 0.86kg, it’s as light as it is strong and with the shortest throw available, it’s all business. We’ve eliminated all movement found with a street shifter assembly for the most precise, worry-free shifter travel possible – even in turns and under load. And unlike other shifters, which use snap-on mounting for the shift knob, our racing shifter features a secure, threaded race mounting. Meanwhile, the raised shift lever position provides comfortable, ergonomic shifting under quick, repetitive conditions – because every shift counts.
The base plate and housing cup are CNC-machined from a single piece of solid extruded 6061-T6 aluminum, while the lever is CNC-machined from a single piece of 7075-T6 aluminum. The entire assembly is precision engineered to be a direct bolt-on to your E46 chassis, eliminating the need to drill holes into your car for installation (as with cheap knockoffs). Shift knob included – please select Tall Black Delrin, or Short DTM-Style White Delrin.
This shifter is fully warrantied for as long as you own the car in which it was originally, properly installed. This shifter requires upgraded transmission mounts.
