Haha, good timing. I just picked up a stretchy universal boot at pep boys the other day for mine. It's got a black pleather-type material and red stitching. Here's some pics of mine installed:

i had a set from redline goods in my golf- they're excellent quality. they're very responsive and they will do practically any combo you can think of. browse around the site to get an idea. they can do each 'panel' a different color, they can do leather strips near the joints with a contrasting color, they can do triple stitching in various colors, contrasting stitching, etc.- the possibilities really are endless with them.

i just went and bought blue pleather then took apart my oem ones at the stitching then layed it on top of the blue like a template them cut it, sewed it up and it looks perfect, no pics tho.

thats a 30 minute job for 10 bucks and you can get any colour or material

I got my shift boot from Auto Zone also......but I fit the thing on an automatic. And it fits without a lot of trouble right over the stock shift indicator, and without removing the shift knob. You do have to remove the center consul however...no big deal.

I'm somewhat surprised those after-market boot places don't make a model for automatics. After-all, stick shift models are only about 10% of the cars sold these days. The main problem is engineering the top closure setup of the boot, since getting the shift knob off is a major problem with most automatics. But the Auto Zone one looks pretty good for $10. [cool]
