Anyone within 60 miles of Madison, WI have any black alcantara in their car? I'm in need of a new shift boot and i can't for the life of me picture what the alcantara is going to look like installed based on the pics i see on the interwebz. Sometimes it looks really grey, other times it looks black. If you have impulse cloth that's an added bonus so i can see how the colors work together. Last thing i want to do is buy the boot, find it clashes w/ the interior and pay a restocking fee.

Hi all, long time lurker on this board, lived in the Madison area for about 4 years after getting back from a deployment, that was when I rolled around in my dependable E36, last year I sold it and updated to my E46. What a fun car that has been.....besides having to replace the cooling system that is. lol

Currently reside in Milwaukee, the roads here suck! But I guess that is just the excuse I needed to update and upgrade the suspension system :-)

Hopefully weather will cooperate. It would suck driving on summer tires in 50 degree weather.
