The armrest cover was the easiest of the three. It has an elastic band sewn in on the bottom and you just stretch the cover over the armrest and align it all so it's prefect. It looks great. The shifter and e-brake were the hardest of the three to do. For the shifter, you take of the stock boot and you take out the "frame" that goes around the bottom. Then you sand it and get all the glue off and reuse it ont he new one. The ebrake is a bit of work too and requires removing the center console. Just a note, when the ebrake is down, like when driving, the boot lays flat and looks great. Everyone loves the boots though and the leather gives the interior a much higher class feel. To each his own I guess.
Maybe you should of bought a manual instead of trying to cover up the autoshifter.
That looks pretty silly with a leather boot on an auto T handle..
And thats why I said I was going to think about it. Honestly, I agree.
But don't tell me I should've bought a manual. Sometimes there is no choice (aka only S197 in a 500 mile radius in my price range). Some people don't have the pockets or the time to find exactly what they are looking for in a used car.
And now that I think about it, why do you care that I was thinking about this in the first place? At least I am going to keep the T-handle, sounds like you got lost looking for the shift-ball automatic replacement thread.
Thanks for all the help everyone. Naturally there's always someone who has to come by and puff his chest out.
