Question Automatic Shifter Boot

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 Any comments would be appreciated!


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