    Hi, As you can see by my pic below I've got a red interior.

    does anyone know if I can get a red leather shifter from anywhere? I've checked eBay but can seem to find any

    cheers

    You can get one trimmed to suit if you wanted.

    thanks mate as that's a good idea, I will get a quote from a couple of local trimmers and I may just pick up a 2nd hand one rather than use my current one

    That's the best way, give then an old one and let them work their magic. A week later you just need to swap them over.

    thanks for the suggestion as I don't think I'd want to dye it myself as it's a high rub part and no doubt over time the black would show through. I'll probably just go for the retrim option

    I got some silver leather dye from dynamix for my old car interior but didn't even get to use it!
