We introduced the Solid Chassis Mounted Shifter to the community to provide an affordable race shifter that is simple to install and completely reversible. However, due to the solid mounted design, stiffer polyurethane and solid engine and transmission bushings are required to run those chassis shifters. While the solid shifter is great for the track there is a compromise of added noise and vibration in the car. For this reason, we came up with a short shifter option that does not sacrifice the comfort of OEM rubber bushings: the Garagistic OEM Supreme Short Shifter.
This new Supreme Short Shifter with the same basic concepts in mind: easy to install and completely modular – meaning you can easily switch between different shifter rod heights and different shift knob types (something other short shifters do not have) and even allows the use of different length shifters and shift knobs from our solid mount family. Not to mention you can adjust the throw to your liking. The "longest" setting simulates what the common OEM+ upgrade z3 shifter would feel like. Move it lower and throw becomes shorter and shorter as you move lower pivot down. Our Supreme Short Shifter does not eliminate the OEM shifter carrier unlike our Solid Shifter, so you can use this shifter with OEM rubber engine and transmission bushings! This is the ultimate short shifter for your street driven BMW or track animal.
Please note: Because this shifter rod is straight (not bent like most BMW OEM shifters), we recommend getting our adjustable DSSR or a DSSR that is 10mm longer to center the shifter again. For E36 Owners, one solution is to use an e30 late model selector joint, which is exactly 10mm longer than the e36 selector joint. We have over 80 configurations of DSSR's if you need to know which one is right for you just email us the last 7 of your VIN and we will pick the appropriate DSSR for you.
Better than the OEM+ common Z3 shifter upgrade
The Z3 1.9 models shifter have long been considered the OEM way to upgrade your shifter on your E30, E36, and E46 models. Although its a good way to shorten the throw on your E30 or E36, it not ideal. The inside is filled with rubber and flexes as you shift. So there will always be play in the system by design.
The Supreme Short Shifter is superior to the Z3 shifter upgrade in that our shifter is completely billet aluminum, while the Z3 shifter has rubber on the inside which can degrade over time and develop slop. For only a few bucks over the Z3 shifter, you can have this adjustable throw unit with less play!
Our supreme short shifter is designed to be the tightest shifter on the market compatible with OEM engine and transmission bushings.
To make your shifter feel as tight as possible, we recommend you replace the following:
- BMW Selector Joint
- Front Carrier Shifter Bushings
- B*tch Clip
- Shifter Cup
- Rear Shifter Carrier Bushing
