Exclamation OEM Alcantara Part# ??

I'm looking to source a matching alcantara e-brake boot, since I already have the OEM shift boot and M-wheel.

Did these ever get produced by BMW, is there a part number for the item?

Already tried looking up on RealOEM.com for a ZHP to no avail.
Perhaps my kung-fu is not strong enough.

If there isn't an original BMW part, please recommend me some matching substitutes (that aren't $200 like I've seen @ some online retailers)

Check out Coby Wheel. I got a steering wheel, auto shift boot, and e-brake boot from them last year, all for under $200. They do really good work.

I think it's this:


34408014125

It looks like you might be able to order it by calling the dealer and telling them the interior color code for the alcantara option.

That still says leather though
My dealer had no idea, I tried calling.

I'd really prefer to keep the OEM shifter boot, instead of finding a matching pair, that stands out from the steering wheel.
The eBay alcantara boots I received were too dark compared to my wheel, so I sold them to a friend.

I saw that but I'm thinking it may be alcantara from the ZHP because of the Z1xx code it suggests. That's the same code it lists for picking seats with alcantara inserts.

How is your Coby Wheel steering wheel holding up after a year? Can you post pics of your steering wheel? Am interested in their steering wheel myself.. thanks!

OP, I recently purchased these off of eBay... and I'm waiting for them to arrive yet. Hopefully it will be good.

eBay alcantara set

I've also heard good things about stuff bought from shiftstyle.com, but their site has been down for a couple weeks now.

My e brake boot was alcantara. Shoot I woulda been able to read the part number off if I could...

But it's most definitely a BMW part number

I've purchased the plain-Jane black version of those. They don't match my alcantara wheel, which is a dark/charcoal grey.

Will probably end up with these:

Because Filip will urge me to purchase the entire E46 braking system in order to obtain the boot. He doesn't part things out.

I found the BMW part number: 34407919214

Unfortunately, it's been discontinued for many years, and superceeded by a P/N for a leather boot.
