Did some search couldn't find any... Anyone thinks the setup for the automatic shift looks ugly? I would love to have a leather boot over that like a manual shifter! Anyone attempted to do this mod? I wud like to cover the letters on the side as u can already see it on the console.

i have, but i made my own, and i'm not completely happy with it.

the shifter gate and knob are actually removable so it would probably be possible to put the OEM manual shifter boot on, but at $160 that would be expensive especially since theres no aftermarket.

I was thinking about getting the wood grain piece that goes on the shifter for mine off Genuine Saab $114 is cheaper too and it might look good.

i dont have a camera at the moment (its not in the house) so i'll get back to you guys with the pics. as far as attaching it, initially with my first prototype i had it secured only by the center trim. it is now secured by tucking it under the shifter faceplate. i have it secured with the screw that holds in the assembly and i have it zip-tied the front near where the front of the console surround is. difficult for me to explain, but i'll post pics when i get the camera back...
