FITMENT: WILL THIS SHIFTER FIT MY CAR?
  • Not compatible with iX AWD E30
  • Short option not recommended for E36 and up chassis
  • 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 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 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 will be too short in an E36.

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 the 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 an OEM rubber engine and transmission bushings! We are constantly making improvements on our parts and the shifter now has a fully threaded center rod and ball for maximum adjustability and compatibility. This is the ultimate short shifter for your street-driven BMW or absolute track animal.

Solid Shifter vs. Supreme Shifter, Which one to choose?

To start off, what is a DSSR you ask? Well, it stands for dual shear selector rod, it's a selector rod that will spread the torsional force on both sides of the selector rod instead of the OEM piece which connects from one side only. Based on the concept of the E30 M3 DTM cars of legend! Going to a DSSR in your E30 will mean less play in the shifter, (decreases side to side motion). This means a more precise and smooth shift every time.
