First Mod to my new Cooper SD
Got rid of the OEM rubbish gators and replaced with some leather ones with nice red stiching to match existing interior

Any photos fitted?

Is that a Whelan gear knob you have?

Yes it was a Whalen Gear knob fitted to my old ONE D and previosly to RVW's Cooper S R53 (red mini in the middle of my sig picture)
but unfortunately it does not fit the R56 so currently living in my glove box!

will take some fitted photos tomorrow when it's daylight

Great, will have a bash at this over the weekend then. Assume no need to take the wheel off, just full lock the wheels, twist of the cover in the arch and away I go?

yes i found it easier to turn the wheel out of the arch you want to work in as makes more room turn it the other way and tyre gets in the way..just cfhanged the amber indicators tonight for chrome ones but those covers are accessable more easiky

Red gear shift knob with leather & red stitching was already in the car from new
but with OEM plastic gators for handbrake & gear shift
which matched the leather steering wheel also with red stitching
