Question BMW performance alcantara shit and e-brake boot fit DCT?

Anyone know if the performance alcantara shift and ebrake boot for the 3 series fit the DCT? I've posted pics of the parts I'm talking about. You guys think it would look out of place with the tri-color stitching on the wheel? I will have the alcantara center piece for the steering wheel. Thanks

The e-brake boot fits, but the shift boot won't. You can get both of these from LeatherZ.com though. See this thread on Kris's car:

No offense but both of those items look BAD on that car. You need a proper knob and parking brake handle to look good IMO. Besides, alcantara is nothing more than freaking cloth; I much rather have leather myself, but to each his own. Alcantara doesn't look bad when you have seats, steering wheel, boots, etc., like Porsche GT3s, but I wouldn't get alcantara on wear areas like seats and steering wheel rims; it doesn't take long to look like crap. But looks nice when new . Have a good one folks.
