Automatic Shifter Boot
3 Attachment(s)
I have searched and found something of interest, but didn't directly answer my question. So here it goes...

I have a 1999 323i Automatic. I have taken apart the shifter trim (window switches and gloss black trim) and shifter plastic surround (where the PRND432 & where the manual shifter boot would go). I want to place a Manual shift boot on my automatic shifter. It looks like the opening for the boot and the plastic shifter surround are identical in size. I would like to know if it can be done...

If it is possible, I plan on ordering from shiftstyle.com. Any comments would be appreciated!


For reference, I attached photos of the trim and shifter.

yea i have it done on mine..just need the boot and the trim that snaps in

Do you know if shiftstyle.com would include the trim that snaps in?

The trim is not really needed. I had one on mine but took it off later. You can hot glue it or just have it pushed in under pressure.


I hate posting this pic, but shows you the shift boot. Hope this helps. Most people hate my interior, but I like it.

Sparker, are you interested in selling your automatic shift cover?

sparker92 01-15-2010 12:54 AM

Sorry, I am not. I keep all the original parts for when I go to sell the car. Truely sorry! However, if you are interested in buying one, you can find one here for about $70 bucks brand new...

I think I got mine in the picture off Ebay...with the stitching, around 40 bucks. I eventually took it off though. Do not have it anymore. I did like it at the time. I still have the matching shift boot still installed. Sometimes, kinda wish I had it back.
