I'm looking for a manufacturing, custom piece for my 320i. The stock piece is old and tattered and I think a nice black suede piece would look great. Anyone know where I can get one other than having one made?

This place sells alcantara ones that look really nice.

suede will have a tendency to rip easily and it stains/fades quick too

I wasn't sure what these parts were made of. I've seen rally cars and stuff that gets dirty and wet and it looks like their steering wheels are made out of suede but I thought it must've been something else. I'm interested in that sight you showed me, but was a tad turned off when the little website visits counter was at 28 :s

maby you should get a replacement stock one it will still last a few years right, you can get them of ebay, there the same as the stock ones though.

speaking of shift boots....I just picked a new one up. When i was trying to stretch it overtop of the plastic square thats used to hold it down to the console, the plastic snapped. Does anyone know where i can get this part from? I tried to look on real oem for the part #, but they didnt have it listed from what i saw. I dont even know the name of this thing, so its tough to find one. If anyone has one lying around, i'd really appreciate it if i could take it off your hands.

Thanks,

"Sit" in a car at the wrecker for a few mins and yoink one...or pay for it if they will let you buy it seperately.
