You got it leather re-wrapped? nice! I did this mod too on my XI, re-wrapped in Alcantara by coby1. It's fantastic and coby1 is the man! I even got the alcantara shift / e-brake boots to match. I haven't gotten around to posting pics yet (I'll update you guys when I do).. but I gotta say I love the paddle shifting too!

I love this mod, congrats OP! Too bad you're in Louisville, otherwise I'd say let's go for a ride!
go big or go home.
