    Hmm, you might be right. Maybe it’s something they did for the Great White North? BMW loved to do small little variations between markets.

    My '06 coupe with Alcantara/cloth interior has the perforated wheel with leather boots. I picked up a pair of Alcantara boots though, because!

    Good to know, can anyone else who has an '06 with perforated leather wheel confirm? Lol yeah I kind want to switch to alcantera boots too, and I wouldn't mind getting the lip spoiler, make it more ZHP like.

    Do yourself a favor and pay up for Coby boots. I tried the “CliqTuning” tri-stitch alcantara boots and while they look nice they’re a PITA—shift boot barely fits the frame and kinda pulled apart at the stitching when trying, and the brake boot material is so thick it barely folds back over itself to zip tie it like you’re supposed to.

    Thanks! Coby wheel products look amazing and priced not too bad, I will defiantly get these in the future. That being said I just cleaned and treated all the leather in my car and the leather boots look pretty nice now, they should hold me over for a while until I sort some of the bigger issues out.

    Oh heavens, no. The M3 broom handle is horrible. Too tall and no weight.

    Not even an M3 one; I think it was a regular shift knob! The M3 one is all leather with an integrated boot, and is lit. I remember yours being a standard non-lit knob with a separate boot, right?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Yes, that was the first thing that I replaced. Wasn’t an integrated boot, but had the ///M logo (I still have it so that I can swap it back if I ever decide to sell)

    The shift knob is not a standard ZHP shift knob, but instead an M3 style one with a separate shift boot. The boot leather is in excellent condition, as is the shift knob and emblem.
