Note on Inventory status
We currently have all components in stock to make these. However, These are very custom and have tons of configurations. In fact, there are nearly 676 different configurations possible. It's not possible to have every combo pre-made ready to go. Each one gets hand-assembled to each customer's specs. Shipping lead time on shifters is around 1 week from order to shipment. Please do not call/email within 30 seconds of placing the order to check status. These are worth the wait, we promise!
Due to high demand, in an effort to keep orders going out in as timely a manner as possible we can not take custom requests outside of our preconfigured options. This includes custom anodizing colors and combinations (example: bare assembly with anodized knob), custom shift patterns and emblems, and custom threading options.
Please leave Year and model in the notes on checkout!
Are you looking for the ultimate in precision shifting and feel? Want to eliminate all slop in the shifter for that tactile mechanical feel and satisfying shift? Look no further than the Garagistic Solid Chassis Mounted Short Shifter! The Garagistic Solid Short Shifter requires no permanent modification to install and is the ultimate short shifter for your BMW! This short shifter provides several significant performance advantages over the factory shifter: less moving parts, stronger design, shorter shifts! It does this by simplifying the shifter system eliminating the need for the aluminum support piece commonly called the "shift carrier". By solid mounting the shifter pivot and base directly to the transmission tunnel this "shift carrier" can be eliminated, getting rid of two mounting points that require bushings thus reducing the points where slop or play can occur.
This shifter paired with a Garagistic DSSR provides the most direct shifting experience possible with virtually no bushings or allowance for slop! Also by raising the pivot point of the shifter up to the trans tunnel height, we have significantly shortened the shift distance at the knob. The shifting experience becomes tight, precise, and tactile, providing a definite feeling coming in and out of each gear. This aids in driver confidence and precision shifting especially when in a stress or race environment! With that said the shifter is still pleasant enough to be driven around every day. The Garagistic Chassis Mounted Short Shifter is made from solid billet aluminum and is available with a variety of stalk lengths and shift knob options. Customize your shifter just to your taste with the Garagistic Chassis Solid Mounted Short Shifter!
This shifter must be run with poly or solid upgraded transmission bushings.
!!!NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OEM SELECTOR RODS!!!
Please note: Because this shifter is straight (not bent/curved like most BMW OEM shifters), some applications may require a custom length DSSR. If you are unsure what length you will need, reach out to us at email@example.com and we will help you figure that out! We have over 80 configurations of DSSR's, so it is crucial to include the last 7 of your VIN for us to reference and assist us in determining which DSSR is appropriate for your application.

Fitment: Will this shifter fit my car?
- Not compatible with iX AWD E30
- Will fit on round transmission tunnel holes between 3 1/4" - 3 3/8" diameter
- Fits most BMW chassis such as E30, E36, E46, Z3, E39, E34, and many more (some very early model cars will require some modification to the opening in order to properly install the shifter. Please check the opening size based on the dimensions provided above.)
- 1984 - 1985 E30 Models have a smaller diameter hole in the trans tunnel for the shifter. This will require you to remove enough material to increase the diameter of the hole in the trans tunnel to (stay tuned for that measurement) with a Dremel for proper installation.
- Please Note: Some OEM BMW shifter rods have a very slight tilt, therefore some shifters will also have a slight tilt once installed.
Fitment: Which size rod should I get for my car?
- In general the longer the rod the longer the shift-throw will be and the less notchy it will feel while the shorter rod produces a shorter the shift-throw and a more notchy feel
- It is important to note that due to the varying heights of center consoles in different chassis, certain size rods may be too small/large for you. For example, the E30 center console is shorter than the E36 center console so a short height shifter rod may be too short in an E36.
