Helix Motorsport Short Shifter For MINI Gen 1, 2 and 3

SKU
Helix-0002
£55.00 £45.83

The Helix short shifter is available for all three MINI Generations and reduces the throw by approximately 27%.


The Helix Short Shifter is available for all three MINI Generations. It is an extremely simple device which has been designed to retain the original shift knob position whilst still providing the shortest throw possible for your MINI.

Some other units require you to replace the complete shifter unit, however, the Helix Short Shifter simply extends the original shift level and reduces the throw by approximately 27%.

Please note: This is for manual transmission cars only.

What it fits:

Generation 1 - 2002-2003

Generation 1/2 - 2004-2013

Generation 3 - 2014+


I'm not sure which short shift unit is for my car? 

Choose 02-03 MINI if you have the grey retaining clip, all other MINIs have a white retaining clip and use the later model of adapter. If you have an 03 or 04 model here's how to check the retaining clip: carefully pull the plastic ring (the bezel) at the bottom of the shifter boot straight up. It will pop off the console to expose four plastic tabs around the perimeter. Look below the bezel at the plastic housing that holds the shifter rod in place with a ball socket. On an '02 or '03, much of the plastic linkage will be white but right where the metal shaft and ball enter the linkage, the plastic will be grey. In the '04 models, the housing will be grey and the ball socket will be white.
