We don't currently have photos of our armrest installed, but if you would be willing to install and take photos, we could offer you 50% off.

Please contact us if interested.

Thank you in advance
If no one has jumped on this yet, I'd be happy to take pictures of the install of the armrest in exchange for 50% off. Please PM me with details

Sorry, we already have someone working on this.

If you need some boots, let us know and we'll work you out a great deal if you can do a DIY.

Thanks

Yup happy to do a DIY, I'm looking for both boots and the armrest cover actually. What kind of deal can you do for me?

I'm also curious to know how the armrest cover works. Is it a slip on? How is it installed? I didn't see anything regarding the installations on the web page.

I picked up a shifter boot for my E30 cab this past summer and love it! I decided my E46 needs the same treatment.

The armrest simply replaces the current factory leather.

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Thank you

I was wondering if the alcantara leather will match up with the OEM one? I have the shift boot, and want the E-brake boot also. Concerned about them matching up.

Can you post any pics of the armrest cover? Do you need to remove the stock leather to install your cover or does it simply slip over the stock material?

There is a member that should be posting photos any day now.

As for the install, you simply remove your factory leather cover, and replace with ours. Very simple

I'm sorry to bump an old thread, but I've been trying to get in touch with Shift Style for over a month now with no response, and in another week's time, my parts will have been missing for two months time. I have received no return email since June 23rd, and shipped my product via USPS on June 28th. I have tried NUMEROUS times to contact them both via email and their contact form on their site. At this time I don't even care if they send me the alcantra boot, I just want my oem parts back as the cost to replace each part with new oem parts is going to be very pricy!

I sent my Shift Boot, Shift Knob & Shift Surround (oem carbon fiber) all to them so that I could have a alcantra Shift Boot Free (a program they do if they do not have your model in their database, which they didn't have one for my 2005 S4). I also shipped my E-Brake handle to have it wrapped and was expecting a bill for this to be done, which would be no problem as it was extra labor. But at this point, I have received NO response to any form of contact I have tried, and feel as a last resort I must track them down through forum posts. If nothing else, let this serve as a warning for anyone else looking to purchase through them or send their parts in as I did.

Thank you for your time and any help on the matter.

I had no luck with them and went as far as opening a Paypal dispute, which ruled in my favour. Only then did Shift Style contact me. I offered to pay for the goods if they would ship them to me but never heard back from them again.

It's a real shame as the shifter boot I had previously purchased was really nice.

I recommend you open a dispute with either Paypal or your credit card company.

That's too bad... I really wanted a black leather boot with cinnamon stitching.

Sent from my Droid in my private jet made entirely of gold.
