    Rubber Shifter Boot

    Does the rubber shifter boot from the E21 fit in place of the regular boot.

    It adds that classic look.

    This is going to be a new trend!

    The late 2002 and early E21 used that shifter boot. The console center piece has a raised lip which the boot fits over and not a frame within the shift boot that snaps into the console. You would need to replicate that console lip for this to work....probably could be done with a 3D printer or some other creative method. I wonder if you could tuck the lower accordion fold under the E30 console edge?

      It's probably possible to insert that base frame into the rubber boot too.
      Or a similar frame that fits better can be 3D printed.

        Yes, possibly that frame would fit into the rubber boot. It has been many years since I've had one of those rubber boots in hand so I cannot remember the differences in size of the base vs. an E30.

        Best just to buy some parts and experiment. It will be interesting to see what you come up with to make it work.
