The old shift boot was seriously getting hard and just did not look new and nice, so I decided to get my wife a brand new custom made Alcantara shift boot for her birthday for her CTS-V. I took a trip to a shop that a friend of mine owns that does nothing but custom upholstery work since I did not like the other ones on the market that I saw.

Several hours later I walked out with a custom made one that was black Alcantara with silver stitching that matched the trim ring, the shift knob and the border stitching on the seats. I was pretty stoked. Funny thing is that with the material being much more pliable than the hard old leather it actually shifted better and went into gear easier, lol. Who would have thought!

I will get some better pictures to post up soon.
