Shift Boots - Want a free one?

Hi guys,

I've created a pattern for the Boxster shift boot, but the problem is I didn't get to snap photos of it before I had to return the car.

If anyone would like a free shift boot, all I would ask is for some quality photos in exchange.

My company offers a wide selection of materials and colors to choose from including Italian Leather, Alcantara, and Carbon Fiber Vinyl.

Here are some samples of our boots (from a BMW):







Thanks

Alcantara is an awesome material in the Boxster (or any car for that matter).

Here are the color choices:









Let us know what you would like, and also let us know if you would be able to take some photos for us.

Thanks

How about we start with the Alcantara, and see how that goes.

Would you like to try black Alcantara with white stitching?

Please PM us with your full name and mailing address and we will get that out to you right away.

Thanks

CJ,

Post the pictures of the shift boot. I am thinking of doing this same mod.

Do these just fit over the existing boots?

Sure!

How about a black leather one with tan stitching to match the seats (savanah beige). Or just all black would be good too. Mine is geting rather scuffed up and for the life of me can't figure out how, but it certainly need replacing. I'd be happy to take some pictures, before and after.

Simply take off the old boot, and replace with the new. It's very easy to do.

Hi Bob,

We could definitely do a black Italian leather boot with tan stitch.

We can offer all 988forum members the price of $29.99 plus FREE shipping.

You can select any material, color, and stitching you would like.

Thank you

Question

ummmmmm what happened to the free offer? Your 29.99 price is the same as on ebay, not including shipping. Please don't make an offer of something for free and then come back and say...oh wait.. its really 29.99. If you're only offering ONE of these for free then you should say so in the orignal post. I think I'll wait.

Bob

Correction, It is not entirely that easy. The staples that hold the old boot onto the trim ring have to be removed to remove the old boot, then the new one has to be stapled back on... Not sure how im going to swing that but ill find a way.

Hi Bob,

We were looking for someone to do photos for us, and we found that person if you would please scroll to the bottom of this thread.

We just wanted to make the FREE shipping offer available to anyone else that wanted a boot.

Thanks

Do you have an Alcantara boot available for a 2001 Audi S4?

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Why would you give someone hard time because they are not giving you their product for free? This is USA nothing is free you pay for it one way or another

Actually, CJ_Boxster got his for free

But anyone else interested, we would like to give a deal to.

How about $24.99 plus FREE shipping to the first 5 people!

The thing I don't get is how anyone is planning on putting this boot on installed. From everything I've seen with any shift knob I've had is that the knob is integrated with the boot. I don't see how these can be used in conjunction with anything that's OEM.
