    Interestingly when I replaced them in my old man’s E60, iDrive automatically reset the service alert for 60k. Definitely nowhere near that long in the E46.

    Yeah shipping is like 8$, if you order tomorrow you should have it by Thursday and you can just hot glue it on.

    At 30$ itís worth the gamble if you ask me, I did the Alcantara arm rest and love the look and feel honestly. I remember you got your car right before me almost 5 years ago from Florida lol I changed my shift boot/knob a while ago cause it was disgusting and Iím ready to do it again

    Iíll be buying the illuminated knob from the F10 m5 & I just scored a spare set of ebrake/shift boots today so Iíll be looking to get those redone by coby too

    Sadly my neighbor took that one to heaven after only 18 months of ownership and the wife actually liked that car (unlike the current one that she candidly refers to as the money pit, lol).

    A cool thing about that car is the last 7 of the VIN were KM05482, and what is my wife's birthday? Apr 5th, 1982. When i mentioned it to her she was not overly impressed and said "but the day/month is backwards" to which i said "no, in Europe they write the day first". BAM.

    Do you have the tie wrap around the neck of the boot? It usually holds it up to the base of the knob. Loosen the boot from the shifter surround, pull the boot up (so it's inside out) & check for/add the tie wrap.

    Mine doesn't have a zip tie there and it sits perfectly fine. This is the first time I've heard of a zip tie being used for the shifter boot... I know the handbrake boot on mine had one, though not sure if that's supposed to be there.

    My handbrake boot also had a ziptie (so I put one on the replacement boot too). The shifter did not have one.

    Hey guys! Just picked up full Alcantara interior for my sedan this past weekend and Iím excited to change up the look of my car eventually but For people with Alcantara interior, is there any remedy for sun faded Alcantara bits?

    Some of the interior pieces I just picked up have a yellowish hue to them and Iíd want to restore these and put them in my sedan to have this interior.

    Any suggestions/cleaning/restoring methods are appreciated

    Found a full option set of sport seats local to me to for only 100$ so I might buy those & swap the alcantara skins over so I can have full heated/power/memory/adjustable bolster Alcantara seats.
