M-stitching w/Alcantara Shift/Emergency Boot

Just need some opinions, you guys think the M-Stitching shift/emergency boot with Alcantara leather look good with the M3 tri-color steering wheel look good together? Black interior with alum trim.

Here are some example pics

They'll definitely go nicely with the steering wheel. Go for it!

I posted up a couple more pics in the Photo/Video forum, but I thought I would update this one also. I got the boots done by Andy Leatherz.com. He did another car of mine as well as a few friends/family. I asked him to make me a set. It is wierd, but looking at the pics the alcantara leather looks lighter but in person it all goes well. It could be the flash that was used. Anyway, let me know what you guys think?

They complement your M steering wheel very well. Congrats!

They look almost identical to the Bimmian ones, probably from the same source in Asia. I have the Bimmian one in the same color Alcantara (they call it black too) with silver / grey stitching.

Looks REALLY good, but not feeling the shifter with that boot. I think the OEM might look better IMO.

I tried the shift boot with the OEM gear selector. It did look pretty good, however I just didn't like the feel of it. A friend has been using Hamann and ACS on his car so I thought I would give it a shot and see. For now, it feels great but I might change it up if I see something else. Haha!

Boots were done by LeatherZ.com. You will have to call them to special order the stitching for our cars since it isn't on their website. The Hamann shifter I got from Lewis at MWDesign

I do not source the boots I sell from Asia. All the boots I sell are made by hand by my brother in Seattle.
