    What you think of these gaitors?

    I really like Glen Yale's Alcantara gaitors, but I like these also.

    Can't make up my mind Leather? Or Alcantara?

    i've got a set of those in yellow/black in my mk3. they're good quality leather and they're a decent fit over the frame, but the thickness of the leather causes the frame to pop out now and again whereas the alcantara ones I had didn't due to being thinner..
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    well you wouldn't lose much on a set if you bought both, as you could stick them back on ebay for a tenner at least!

    That's what I was thinking

    Is the gear gaitor attached to the knob? Without turning this into an innuendo, it seemed stiff when I tugged at it.

    OK cool thanks.

    Leather it is.

    What you think? This one:

    Or this one:

    I think the ligher one is nicer, but the darker one would probably match my car better.
