Shifter Upgrade HELP

I have a 1998 slk 230, with the shifter that has P R N D AND 4 3 2 1. I would like to put in the shifter that has P R N +D- in it. Can i do it with out any major changes to the car . I've seen this setup in a 2000 slk 230 , but i don't know if there are any transmission, or transmission cpu differences.
Thanks to everybody for helping
