The MINI Cooper R56 has a gearshift situated in between the two front seats, just behind the central dash. You can remove the knob on the gearshift in a matter of minutes if you need to repair or replace it. As the knob is very bland, many drivers decide to install a more visually pleasing knob to enhance their vehicle's appearance. Replacement knobs can be purchased through your MINI dealership or through online stores.
