They have been replaced with some new screws on the underside of the center console. (Check the image above for a closer look.) Not only does it look better, but the un-boot is held even more securely than before in this position. There is still no cutting or drilling or gluing required; you can return to stock at any time.
It just works

Solid piece of metal
Posted by Charles Grice III on 29th Aug 2016
I followed the instructions for the short-throw shift kit and ordered this boot delete kit. As I had everything off for the installation of the new shifter, installing this was cake. Spring, ABS plastic (rough side up for me), and then snap the metal ring in place. Done, finished, clean. 2010 R56 nS
make you shifter the way it SHOULDVE BEEN

Excellent quality. Fiddley to install but nothing out of the norm considering how fiddely a 1st gen cooper is. Looks stunning and will outlive the car hands down. I debated on buying this for over a year and I'm glad I finally did.

If I could give this 4.5 stars I would. The only knock I have is my stock shift lever is of some sort of 2 piece design and where they meet is visible just above shift well cover. Not a big deal really, just something I noticed.
The install was incredibly easier than instructions. I may have been lucky in this regard. When I pulled off my shift knob the gator and lower trim ring came up and out with it! So all I had to do is slide the lower spring down, place the disc and grommet on top and then clip the actual cover in place. Reinstall the knob and I was done! It took maybe 2-4 minutes to do everything.
Overall I am very satisfied with the fit and finish. Looks great and is stands out from the other MINI's in my local motoring club.
This was for a 2007 R56s.

Mini Shift Well Cover

This really cleans the car interior. I'm using this with the Craven Speed adjustable short shifter, their shift knob, and brake handle. This combination looks great in the Mini's interior.
Cleaner looking than stock for sure

The install is a bit of a pain. But worth it. The inside of the car looks less busy. Should have gotten a new knob to match the new look.
Solid as a rock!!

Combined with the Craven shifter, it's the best overall setup out there. Really great!
Should have come as stock!

The best bucks I have spent so far on my MINI. It makes the shifter housing look so neat.
The installation is simple but requires quite a bit of strength. It took me almost half an hour to remove the parking brake knob and boot.
looks great with my whalen shift machine

This is a wonderful product and the craftmanship is amazing. Easy install and it looks great! I have the Whalen shift machine and it matches the shift well cover perfectly.
I can't wait to add the Craven e-brake handle. Craven's products are all very high quality, you can not go wrong with any Craven purchase and Kellen is great to work with, he knows customer service!

Shift Well Cover

This is one solid item. It is well machined and looks great in the car. It really seems to open up the cockpit, I'm amazed how much added room I have. Very impressed by the looks and quality of the shift cover, I highly recommend it and am very glad I purchase it.
