    auto zhps shift boot and e brake boot black leather material or alcantara

    Hey all,

    I was browsing some pictures in the classified section and noticed that all of the auto zhp's have alcantara shift boots and ebrake boots. Can anyone clarify if this is a standard feature or optional because my car (bought it used) came with a black leather shift boot and black leather ebrake boot. Thanks.

    Hello! I'll wait for the others to chime in, but the ZHP interior was available in alcantara/cloth or leather.

    I'm not sure which was "standard".

    Here is a thread that may be good reading:

    mtnman's (David) AUTO was alcantara - and he recently upgraded the boot to alcantara with stitching thru Coby Wheel, a site affiliate advertiser.

    nope. originally shift boot was alcantara. Just upgraded it. It may have something to do with the time when they switched the steering wheel to leather....John, is your wheel leather too?

    they also replaced alcantara wheels under cpo with leather ones i believe. Dane may verify that more than me...im speculating on something i may remember from an old thread.
