Customizing Auto Gear Selector

What do yall think about re-wrapping the oem leather auto shift knob with some perforated leather to match the mtech wheel and e-brake handle... maybe throw in some colored stitching? change out the pearlescent crome strip? Suggestions are appreciated...

I just want to see something different than the performance one sold through BMW since there are not many options for auto trans like there are for the 6-speeds...

If it turns out solid, is there any one here interested in having it done?

Yes, I would be very interested.

Funny thing, I was actually google searching auto M-tech shifters that would have perforated leather and colored stitching.

I would also buy colored strips to change out the pearlescent trim on the shifter.

APPROVED!
