German term or phrase: Kulissenschaltung
Dear all,

catalogue for car accessories. The part you can see here instead of my boring features is called a ‘Kulissenschaltung’ in German. Does anybody know a halfway decent English name for it? I could use ‘gear base plate’ but that isn’t really quite right. The part can be bought as an accessory for the BMW Z3. I tried the glossaries and Google, many hits in German but no English translation. I am trying to find a UK word but US is fine too.

Thanks in advance.


By the way, for some inexplicable technical reason the questions I pose always appear twice. I have no influence whatsoever on that phenomenon. I am careful enough to push send only once. If this question also appears twice, let us just use the upper one and maybe somebody is good enough to delete the lower one.

Thanks a lot in advance
