Yes it is possible. Someone will give you a link to a few that you can select from I do not remember off the top of my head where they are.

Definatley the second, but, do you have to have the overdrive button, if you want it always in overdrive, I guess that was my main question. is it hard to install?

The install isn't too bad...if you wanna see how bad it is, look at the back of your knob now, there should be a small hole there and a little screw if I remember right, to install a new one you'll take that one off, and unplug the wire running to the o/d switch. If you don't wanna spend the money on the o/d switch, you can run the wiring to a toggle switch if you want, it's just kinda nice to have it still on the shifter. Then, get you a good leather shift boot and stretch it all the way up to the knob, and watch ppl be confused when they try and find your clutch.

Awesome, how hard is the boot install?, that would be the coolest thing, though, I just didn't like the way the button looked on the back of the shifter pole, thats all. but the boot would be way cool.

I have a boot on mine, the one I bought has elastic on the bottom of it, so I just took the bezel off around the shifter, put the boot on, and stretched the elastic around the bottom. The only downside to this is you can't see what gear you're in or anything but for me...I never paid attention, just have it all memorized. I need to find a new shifter boot though, I got a cheap one before.

I think the one with the red background would look nice in your car. Then get a black leather boot with red stitching. That would look so sweet inside your car. Then get a matching e brake handle and e brake boot with red stitching.

if your looking for a boot check redlinegoods.com Their quality is awesome. I have the MGW gripper knob and I relocated my O/D button to the center console where that little stupid coin holder thing was. It makes the interior look soooo much cleaner.
