Here's an odd one... The leather around my shifter is gradually peeling away and I like to keep my car in best condition I can.. Is it a pain or expensive to replace?? Thanks guys

Genuine 1 s are about £45 but topgaiters do some nice leather ones look in my build thread there's a pic of mine I believe was about £10

It's not an odd one mate. It happens to everyone. Search the forum, there's a hundred and one threads on this. There's a leather one on ebay everyone seems to buy and it's dead easy to replace.

Thanks guys, been annoying me for ages lol
Hi mate, I got a spare one I never used from topgaiters. (I now sold the car, so no use for it) if your interested.

I'm just after postage cost for it

Ok so now that I've looked into it there's two that people go for. The leather one from The Tuning Shop and the softer one from Top Gaitors. Anyone have any idea which one's better?

Which leather one is it mate, the standard or perforated? I'm guessing it's the red stitched one?

I have the perforated leather with grey stitch on mine and it looks really good tbh, piece of to change the plastic surround just pops off, I found a tiny screwdriver in from the side near the top worked Fine and left no marks at all, some people said they used the fingers but I couldnt find anywhere to get a grip, hence tiny flathead! I got mine from topgaitors off ebay.

No worries :)

To be honest I'm surprised I've not seen more people replace the OEM gaiter with a perforated leather one. It would look almost identical to the original but be more durable, win win! :confused: :)
