New Brake Boot, want opinions

Do you like the boot? I bought it from ShiftStyle.com. It is Gray Alcantara with White Stitches. The car is Alpine White with Black Leatherette interior. I thought the Gray made a promising two-tone effect, along with the white stitching to bring in the exterior color of the car. So far, no problems. Perfect fit! If you are looking to buy one, keep in mind that ShiftStyle has hundreds of combinations to choose from (materials, colors, stitching, stitch style, two-toning, you name it). I couldn't be happier!

Obviously, the picture with the Black Leather boot was what it originally looked like.

Not to thread jack, but I just got the black w/ white stitching

I think the gray look ok, but it stands out a bit too much for my liking. Had you done gray stitching and black alcantra it might be better

That's what I originally wanted, but I changed my mind (don't know why). But for abo. $40 bucks (with shipping) I might just order 3 or 4 more and change them with the seasons or what ever mood I am in.

I wish I could afford an alcantara M steering wheel! And I wish I had a manual as well. However, I am going to place the shifter boot on it anyway (eventually). Thanks for the advice!
