Very very nice!
I always enjoyed alcantara/suede interiors.
I don't know if I'd ever bother redoing my steering wheel but for sure the shift boot and handbrake.
Thanks for posting up!

I had decided a while ago that I would not spend $1k on the performance steering wheel as I could spend that money on track wheels/tires/supplies etc.

But after all these recent posts of the PSW installs.......you guys are KILLING me!!

Nice work on the matching shift and e-brake boot alcantara MentholGuy. Looking really good.

Looks great Kris. Just don't be surprised if those pieces go missing at the next meet.

Wow, that looks great! The other bits makes the steering wheel look more at home in there with the white stitching. Very tastefully done. BMW Performance seats would fit right in with everything you have done in there so far.
