A Trifecta of Leather hotness..... fox red. carbon. alcantara

i know technically alcantara isn't a leather.. but whatever....



Got these special made from Leatherz... with white stitching to match the BMW performance wheel....

the Knob is a light up..... and i chose the old school 3 stripes in the corner.. i like the way it looks....

nice little classy touch i think...

I'm definitely liking it
I would have skipped the alcantara shift knob though.

I am not really feeling the alcantara on the brake lever and shifter, but I think the mascot is cool!

The boots like great, goes well with the wheel. Its almost too much alcantara with the knob imo.

Very clean. The shift knob reminds me of my E36 minus one gear

YOUR INTERIOR IS SICK!!! I love the Alcantra look when new, I had it in my E46 and after a few months the stearing wheel got pretty ugly...I think your supposed to pass a razor through it to keep it looking nice...

You should have acquired the shorter, weighted knob. I bet LeatherZ could do it in alcantara if you wanted. (It seems nobody here is a fan of that.) I like the alcantara boots, especially the way the the steering wheel, shift and brake boots match. I bet it looks classy in person.

Tru.. but that one is hard to get lighted up.?... i thought..... i dont like the stock shift knob.. its squishy and long.. but the fact is.. when im driving spiritedly or on the road course.. it doesn't bother me one bit.. i dont even notice it.. and thats when it really matters...

http://www.LeatherZ.com has all the pricing info for the boots.

Andy is a great guy and his brother is very skilled at making these boots. I got my tri-color stitched boots from them as well
