    Automatic shifter cover

    I am awaiting the arrival of my leather shifter cover, with blue thread matching my blue vent covers! Here's the link I'll post pics when it arrives as when it's installed.

    I ordered a similar cover for my manual transmission knob from Ali that sadly did not fit.

    Aw man that sucks! I'm hoping it fits because it specifically said the 2015 automatic shifter so fingers crossed!

    So update for you all!

    After a bit of mcgyvering, and some cutting, it actually fits, and looks rad as hell!

    The cover has holes for the overdrive button and shifter lock button. Shifter lock button fit perfect, overdrive button hole was off towards the back of the car.

    Couldn't make it for and thought I wasted $20. But I remembered I had a Swiss Army knife in the back. I figured what the hell it doesn't fit and if I cut it and it rips so be it. Turns out it's real leather, and after trimming the overdrive button hole, it actually fit and I was able to sew it on. It's great as long as you carefully trim the bottom overdrive button hole.

    Comes in red, blue, silver, and white thread options. Attaching pics from before trimming and after. May not be the cleanest but didn't waste my $20 either.

    Sewed on using thread and needle provided, all 4 angles best I could in the cramped space.

    After trimming and some stretching of the leather in my hands:

    That actually looks really clean! Wish my 5MT cover fit, it seemed like it was two sizes too small.

    It will probably fit if you steam and stretch it as long as it's leather based
