$25 each on Amazon with free shipping. I don't really like throwing parts on to solve a problem, but its $100, and it is the most likely source of noise. Recall I mentioned that the inside grooves are almost worn out? Well, I looked again this weekend, and if I shine a flashlight from 1 side, I can see a faint amount of light on the other. I figure it's cheaper than taking it to a shop

Look forward to your impressions when you get some time w/ all 4 Contis.
BTW, got a new 8 wk old pup last week, post some pics soon, and probably in your build thread lol.

I'm sure I'll say something this Spring. Having them on the front should (?) be something more noticeable than just putting them on the rears.

Thanks! It's a Maltipoo (a Maltese/Toy Poodle cross). Wife has wanted a house dog that we can travel with, and this one seemed to have her name on him
Already crate-trained and "mostly" figured out his accident schedule, so we're slowly teaching him who's got seniority around here

Got a Rottweiler & a Pit/Lab mix for outdoors, but this is our first house/lap dog, a real fun fellow.

Just ordered an armrest leather piece from Redline Goods, to match their charcoal leather in the shift boot. Perforated charcoal leather on the top, and non-perf on the sides, with matching stitching.

In prep, I took the armrest apart and realized this is a no-brainer. No as long as the new piece has good fitment, should be fine. Might need to buy some extra padding from the hobby store, and some kind of glue... I really don't know yet. I'll figure it out as I go.

Redline has very aggressive promotions, so I figured $41-shipped was very reasonable.

I did the same, here's a sneak peak of what you'll be getting. I'm going to attempt an install today. We will definitely need some spray adhesive.

Fantastic. Thanks for chiming in. You're a week or two ahead of me, so I would be grateful for tips.

The shift boot takes some finesse. Slow down, walk away if you have to. If you force it through while frustrated, the project is going to look hacked up.

Looking forward to your armrest work.

Got the shift boot in, definitely echo the slow, steady, and patient.

I did a quick fitment check on the armrest, looks like it going to be a pain as well. I need to step back and think a little on the approach. I'll keep you posted. Btw, my initial thought is that it goes right over the OE cover vs. peeling it back the old and replacing with the new.
