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!

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
