JDM Style Suede Shift Boot and Greddy Knob

Just recently did this mod to my car and I REALLY like it. One of my buddies had a Prelude years ago and this is his old shift boot. I checked all over eBay and could not find a suede shift boot that had black stiching on it! He still had his old one and gave it to me. It is a JDM-style Formula 1 Suede shift boot. To all those who want to buy one of these beware, the metal ring at the top makes a small "clink" sound when you shift. It isn't very loud and I absolutely LOVE the sound but to some it could be annoying. Also, the shift boot usually falls down a little and gets this "sunken" kind of look and reveals about an inch of the shift lever but overall I absolutely love this thing.

The Greddy shift knob is awesome!!! It feels great in your hand and is actually a lot smaller than it looks in pictures. It is affected by weather but I am sure everyone here is familiar with hot and cold shift knobs! Something really cool, it comes with difference faceplates which are different weights and different colors so you get to customize the knob based on how well it matches your interior! I highly recommend these two products! I attached a few pics so everyone can see how these things look!

Re: JDM Style Suede Shift Boot and Greddy Knob

^^^ im pretty sure jdm means japan domestic market, so a jdm style shift boot would be stock since there really isnt a difference between usdm and jdm interior besides lhd or rhd. so it really isnt jdm, its a aftermarket style shift boot.... but on the otherhand jdm engines have more hp cause they arent as strict with fuel economy, smog, etc so there is a difference there jdm>usdm.... oh and 3rd gen(?) jdm integra have different front clip than the usdm models too

I have no idea why its called that either. I asked my buddy what it was and he said JDM Formula-1, so I googled that and I found a picture of the exact shift boot and this is what they called it on the site I was looking at. Also, these shift boots are referred to as "JDM Style" on eBay so ... don't have a name for it aside from suede aftermarket shift boot and that doesn't sound as good
