Attention to details in every step

Please note that to fit these to pre-facelift MINIs (up to 12/2003), you will require the MINI facelift shifter cables. (part numbers: 25 11 2 753 893/25 11 7 594 647). You can get them here. 

The hand-assembled Coolerworx short throw shifter can replace OEM gear shifter in order to achieve quicker and more ergonomic change of gears. A precisely operating shifter is designed so that it can be fitted to all standard gearboxes. Our shifters are made from aircraft quality aluminium and teflon bearings. Its metal parts are anodized to protect from corrosion and depreciation. Our shifter follows standard H pattern and has has lockable gears preventing reverse from accidental engagement. In order to match a new gear shifter to the car compartment you can choose the desired colour of the gear shifter and its handle.

The distance to be covered with hand when changing gears reduces even by 40%, but this improvement is reflected only in hand movement – mechanical gear change is the same as with the manufacturer’s gear. Another advantage is that this shifter is long enough and its handle can be reached by hand from the wheel very quickly. This unique shifter model enables drivers to change gears quicker and more precisely and optimises car movement on the road. ‘Coolerworx’ gear shifter will be appreciated both by city drivers and lovers of racing routes. Self centering spring helps you to prevent shifter from wobble and makes gear change more accurate and precise.

Don’t waste your time for changing gears – devote it for enjoying the pleasure of driving!

Shifter knob uses M12x1.5 thread, so you can easily customize it with aftermarket knob.
