Part number for under car B&M shifter for 996 plea

Recommended Posts

It is strange B&M does not have it on its site. When it first came out I went to B&M site and it was not there.

Brandywine Porsche was selling a bunch of them on ebay for about $175, but there are none there now. One of our local 996 owners bought one. I will ask him for the part number but he is usually slow getting back to me. Jeff

You like me are on the message boards where a few people have combined both types of units. All but one has removed one of the units as the shifting effort was too high. Any short shift requires more effort as it reduces your leverage, and if you add an addition unit then the required effort will be even greater.

It will not damage the transmission if you give the syncros time to work.

Paul has not yet responded to my request for the part number. Maybe he beat you on ebay.

I looked at that same auction. From the pictures in the auction it looked identical to the RUF shifter in every detail. I called B&M and they manufacture it for subcontractors, they do not sell it through their normal dealer network.

It is going to be interesting to see how the shifts sort out. ;)

Last month I called our local 996 owner who bought the B&M from Brandywine on ebay which bolts to the transmission to get the part number. He answered on his cell phone in Paris where he will be on business until mid-Feb, so I will not have the part number until he get back to California.

Our local group had dinner with a guy from Germany a few days ago from the German Boxster board. You cannot buy the B&M unit that replaces the shift lever in Germany anymore now that Porsche has come out with the same thing.

I think all this stuff is made by H&R.
