I make all of the LeatherZ boots. Personally.

I just got my E90 M3 last Thursday (hence I recently joined this site). Boots are coming. The M boot is M3-specific, the e-brake boot is common to the other E9x cars.

ZHP knob is the logical choice for a shorter knob. I can make them in alcantara or leather to match boots.

So how do you switch out the shifter once you get your new boot?

I'm running the performance shift knob + a leatherZ alcantara boot. I really like the boot from leatherZ, looks great and compliments the alcantara bit from the shift knob nicely.

As for the performance shift knob, the lower height than stock is perfect IMHO.
