I have a B& M leaver on mine, you can get a pin as well to make the shift even shorter.
Look on the MB Performance website to see what i mean.

Prob cost you best part of 100 if you go to a garage, if he's a mate then prob half that.

ive got the b&M short shift  on mine , looks great  and has a nice feel to it but ive noticed on mine that its affected by the heat off the exhaust , the bairing seems to expand and it makes the gear change feel stiff , im going to have to try make some sort of heat shield  and see how it goes .
