Another little thing to check off the list for the Orange Stripper interior: take 2 on an Alcantara shift knob with a little extra touch.
I removed the DCT knob earlier in April, (don't be afraid to pull hard) with the boot
It's a simple process to unplug the connector as well.
I shipped it to a Connex member, Anthony, for a complete reupholstery with 9002 Alcantara with Black Stitching, and Gloss Black shift knob.
It's already Alcantara eh?
I bought the previous boot from another company under the impression it would replace all of the OEM leather.
I was told this was a clean look.
The knob's OEM silver coating is also wearing off a bit and it impacts my OCD.
A proper restoration with an OEM+ twist
Anthony is an enthusiast and mechanic; I'm excited to further my interior with him.
Anthony at DT Motorworks started offering this service a few months ago and we've been chatting about doing mine.
I sent my knob in and got it back within a week of it arriving in San Diego.
This is the end result.
The gloss black paint is on point: no nibs, dust particles or any specs - and no orange peel.
The Alcantara 9002 with black stitching matches my e-brake boot and MJunkee E9X M3 GTS armrest. The alcantara is well glued to the knob.
I've curated Anthony's upholstery & paint service under E9X M3 curated catalogs here.
As a single-man operation, the curated listing will remain on a waiting list format. I will be offering pre-orders via Social Buys for this product to the waiting list members as priority.
Another small piece to further our E9X M3 builds.
More applications are coming soon.
