MM Marketing Leather Gear Shift and E. Brake Boot

[1/21/2002] Reviewed by: Mike Norman -

Applicable to: '99 + 1.8 liter

The MM Marketing tan leather shift boot and parking handle covers.

I purchased the items for my tan 99 to dress up the interior, but I found the leather was more brown than tan. When I talked to MM they said it better matches the M1 interior.

While I have been happy with previous purchases from MM, I do not recommend the tan versions of the leather upgrades for the M2 interior.

Not an installed item

A way to get rid of some of the cheeseyness of the stock interior.

Installation is a snap and only took me 20 min to install both items. Installing the gearshift and emergency boot is very simple and straight forward. Both require the removal of the center console, so it's best to do them both at the same time. The results are amazing. The interior looks less plastic and more elegant. Instructions were included with the emergency brake boot, but not with the gearshift boot (this is no problem, since the gear shift boot removal and replacement is very easy).

I'm totaly impressed with the look and feel of the leather.
