I think it would look better if the material matched the shifter boot and the seats but it is a nice touch.

I think it looks good. Nice little touches add up.

Unfortunately, I have to replace my entire e-brake arm.

Person that owned it before me must have had a dog...or a lion. The e-brake button and the rubber bit at the end of the handle is all chewed up like they locked the dog in the car. Also have a paw/nail scratch on my drivers side door panel - near window, and one on dash top.

Those little things are barely noticeable by others, but they drive me freakin' crazy.

Anyhow, looks great TC!

I wish there was an aftermarket short throw lever available for my 2010. I think it looks much better with the boot you've installed. I've always thought the lever is the only ugly part of the interior. It's just too long and obtrusive.

Did similar adding leather ebrake boot and also leather visor covers.
The visor covers I re-worked before installing because did not like the velcro flaps and decided to permanently install the covers by using Barge leather adhesive to bond the covers to the OEM plastic visor. Stitching matches rest of interior.

Where did you guys buy the leather e-brake boots? I think they look really good. That will be my next interior upgrade.

Looks good! How does the other side of the handle look like?

Do you have to take the console apart to install the leather boot cover?
