I've just joined the Forum as a new owner of a 2002 SLK320 (6 spd manual). I used the Forum quite extensively before deciding to buy the SLK, and found the information very useful.

One thing that I'd like to figure out is if the shifter can be made into a shorter throw mechanism, either with an aftermarket unit, or via modification. I've installed Hurst shifters on some of the American vehicles that I've owned, but have yet to find anything similar for an SLK.

Thanks!

Welcome from southern California. The R170 crowd may know.

Welcome from NE England. I don't recall anyone here fitting (or even inquiring about) a short shifter for an R170, but that doesn't mean it can't be done.
