MINI Shift Well Cover

Stock Status: Usually Ships Next Business Day


There's more than one way to protect your shifter housing; yet so many cars come with the same old shift boot from the factory. For us, 'same old' and MINI do no go well together.


Drawing inspiration from the gated shifter found on some of the finest Italian autos, Craven Speed created this shift well cover for the MINI. With a recent revision you'll notice the improved look of our shift well as we have done away with the exposed screws on the top of the boot.
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

In order to keep dust and debris away from your shifter housing, our shift well uses a sliding plate that you attach to the shifter itself. A custom spring sits around the shifter atop the pivoting ball, and keeps the plate pressed up against the bottom of the well.


The shift well cover is a perfect mate for our adjustable short shifter, but it will work (and look great) with almost any shifter including the stock lever. Notice photo above with the B&M shifter installed. The Shift Well Cover does offer easy access to the unique Craven Speed Adjustable Shifter locking collar, having the collar exposed makes adjustments even quicker. Just grab and twist, set and tighten.

She got some new toys from CravenSpeed and in this video, I go ahead and install them all. In the previous video regarding the Mini, we stripped out most of the interior and it set us up so we could have access to the shifter.

  1. GOOD QUALITY! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Feb 2017

    very good quality, easy to install and nice looking too! Happy enough with it :)

  2. Solid piece of metal 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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

  3. make you shifter the way it SHOULDVE BEEN 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    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.

  4. Almost Perfect! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2015

    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.

  5. Nice upgrade 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jun 2013

    This looks nice and clean in my car. Much better looking and quality than stock and was very easy to install. Glad I got it and would recommend to anyone.

  8. Great Accessory for your MINI 5 Star Review

    This shift cover looks really great and when combined with the Craven Speed shift knob, they look great!

  9. Mini Shift Well Cover 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2012

    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.

  10. Cleaner looking than stock for sure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2012

    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.

  11. Solid as a rock!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2012

    Combined with the Craven shifter, it's the best overall setup out there. Really great!

  12. Should have come as stock! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2011

    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.

  13. looks great with my whalen shift machine 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2011

    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!

  14. Sexy Shift well cover!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Nov 2010

    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.
