The boot is very dark, almost as dark as the dash. The photo doesn't do it justice. If you look at the color it is in the bag, that's the color.
The boot and lever are a direct replacement for the stock. The nice thing is, the knob is weighted and shorter than the stock one so the feel is much better. I always felt that the stock lever was too tall so with the shorter knob in place, it's just about the right height. I have a stock knob for sale if anyone wants one. I'm not holding my breath.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Reason: Changing the word lever for knob to be more accurate.
