and Brake Boot Return Policy -
of our Shift and Brake Boots are handmade to order. Because of the options
we offer, they should be considered a one of a kind item. They are not
mass produced and they are not one-size-fits all. As such, LeatherZ does
not accept returns or exchanges on any shift or brake boot. This
includes un-installed boots. Please see the FAQ, before ordering, at the
bottom of this page for more information.
LeatherZ Boot Bundle (Complete) - Come complete and ready to install. Simply
remove your stock boot and install the new one! Please read the following
paragraph carefully BEFORE ordering!
The LeatherZ Boot Bundle (Complete) are the same as our Boot Bundle (Boot
Only). The only difference is that the Complete Boots comes with the OEM BMW
plastic ring attached to the boot. The way a BMW Shift Boot works is, the
leather portion is attached to a plastic ring. This ring snaps in and secures
the base of the shift boot to the center console. With our Complete option,
when you receive your new boot, you just need to remove your stock shift boot
and simply install the new boot. Since our Complete Shift Boots come with
this OEM BMW ring already attached, we need to charge more based on the cost
of the ring. With the Boot Only option, since you are re-using your stock
ring, you will save this cost. Please note that if you would like to save
money and have me re-use the plastic ring from your stock boot, I am more
than happy to do that for you. Please contact
me for details.
We put the LeatherZ Boot Bundle together because most people buy both a Shift
and Emergency Brake Boot. Available in either leather or Alcantara and a wide
variety of stiching colors.
Each boot includes French seam identical to factory part. We build complete
shift and brake boots with the plastic ring base included, unlike some other
vendors who ask you to tear apart your stock boot and superglue ( ! ) their
boot to your ring. Certain 2-tone colors and deviating stitching themes are
available at no extra charge; Email
us for more details. If you would like a custom color or design or have
a car/application not listed below, please call or email for a quote and lead

**Please note that the only difference between the M3 and non-M3 Version of
the E46 Shift boot is that the M3 has 4 lines of stitching compared to the non-M's
2 lines of stitching. Either boot will fit any manual version of the E46 3-Series.
The additional price for the M3 version is due to the increased time of production.
We suggest M3 owners save their money and opt for the non-M version. The 2 additional
stitch lines are at the front of the boot (away from the driver and towards
the console) making them very difficult to see as it is.**
Note: price varies based on the configuration of your car because of the
cost of the plastic BMW ring at the base of the boot. Please take note
that the cost of the plastic ring that is required for your boot will add to
the total price. Please check the pricing under the Model Selection before

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I order a Boot Bundle with M Stitching?
The Motorsport Stitching Pattern is not available through Boot Bundle pricing.
You will need to order each boot individually.
What is the difference between the LeatherZ Boot
Bundle - Complete and the the LeatherZ Boot Bundle - Boot Only?
The way a BMW shift boot works is, the leather boot is glued to a plastic
ring. This plastic ring snaps into the center console and secures the base
of the boot to the console. Our Complete Shift Boots come with the OEM BMW
plastic ring already attached to the leather boot. The Boot Only Shift Boot
is just the leather portion. If you purchased the Boot Only Shift Boot, you
would get just the leather boot and would need to remove your stock leather
boot fromt he plastic ring. Then install the new boot onto the ring.
LeatherZ Shift Boot - Complete
This is a complete replacement for your stock boot. It has the
OEM BMW plastic ring attached to the base so all you need to do is remove
your stock shift boot and install the new one. No muss, no fuss. Because it
has the OEM BMW ring attached to it, the price is higher and varies depending
on the BMW model you have.
LeatherZ Shift Boot - Boot
Only When you receive it, you will need to remove your
stock shift boot and carefully separate the shift boot from the plastic ring.
Once you have separated the stock boot from the plastic ring, you will need
to glue your new boot to the plastic ring. Once done you will be able to re-install
the new shift boot. I include instructions on how to install the new boot
as well as what glue to use.
Do you accept returns on Shift
and Emergency Brake Boots? Can I exchange my boot for a different one? I selected
a color combination that I do not like.
All of our Shift and Brake
Boots are handmade to order. Because of the options we offer, they should
be considered one of a kind item. They are not mass produced and they are
not one-size-fits all. As such, LeatherZ does not accept returns or
exchanges on any shift or brake boot. This includes un-installed boots. Because
each boot is unique and made to your order, we can not accept it as a return.
Please note that it is VERY difficult to match leather.
Over time, as your leather is exposed to the elements, UV rays, chemicals,
dirt, cleaners and conditions, it will change. We match the leather we use
to new OEM BMW leather that we have. This BMW leather is pristine and has
not been used like your car has. Because leather changes over time, if you
get a shift or brake boot and you are not happy with the color match, we are
sorry but there are no returns or exchanges. Please ask for a leather or
Alcantara sample BEFORE buying.
The price of the Boot Bundle is listed as $210.00
but when I add it to my shopping cart, it is higher. Why is this?
As stated, the base price of our boot bundle is $210.00. Since you are buying
complete boots, with the OEM BMW plastic ring attached, we need to charge
the cost of the boot rings (the plastic piece that connects the boot to the
center console). The cost of this part varies from model to model and as a
result, we have to charge more for certain configurations. If you send your
stock boot to us, we can re-use the boot ring and it will save you the cost
of the new ring...Your total price would begin at $120.00. If you would like
to do this, please contact us.
You can also order our Boot Only Boot Bundle and do a little bit of work on
I do not understand what the boot ring is, is it the
Chrome piece surrounding the shift boot in some of the pictures?
No. The chrome piece pictured in our gallery is the stock BMW trim from
an M Z3 Roadster/Coupe. It is not a prat of the boot but rather a part of
the center console. The boot ring we are referring to is a black plastic piece
that is not seen when the boot is installed. Every BMW shift boot has this
piece and if you remove your stock boot, you will see it. The Boot Ring will
look similar to:
If I buy your boots, can I then send in my stock boots
or the mounting rings and receive a credit?
Sorry but LeatherZ does not do core exchanges or credits for used parts.
We tried to do core exchanges on parts in the past and it became much more
of a hassle than it was worth. Customers would send in their parts many months
later or they would send in damaged/broken/worn out parts. Also, we prefer
to sell NEW parts to our customers. They may cost more, but this way we can
guarantee that there will be no issues with the installation or longevity
of the parts.
Will the new shift boot work with my stock shift knob?
On some models such as the M3 and M5, the OEM shift boot and shift knob are
all one-piece of leather (they are attached to one another). If your stock
shift knob is like this, you will need to purchase a new shift knob. We
offer many different styles of shift knobs or you can purchase an OEM
BMW shift knob or one from another vendor.
Will this shift boot fit a Right Hand Drive Car?
No. We only build boots for Left Hand Drive cars (US models).
My BMW is not a Manual transmission, do you have shift
boot for automatic/steptronic cars?
We can build you a shift boot for your car. Please contact
us for pricing.
Do you accept returns on Shift and Emergency Brake
Boots? I selected a color combination that I do not like.
We do not accept returns on Boots. Because each boot is unique and made to
your order, we can not accept it as a return. If you are on the fence on a
color choice, contact us prior to ordering and request a color sample.
When will I receive my order?
Your boot(s) is made to your order. They are not mass produced. Because of
this, plan on 10-14 days for the boot to arrive in your hands. In some cases,
the boots will ship within a few days of your order and in others it will
take the full 14 days. If you need your boots by a certain date, please
call me for an accurate turnaround time.
