Post by swabyk » Mon 19 Sep, 2016 15:41

Anyone know where they sell beige gearstick gaiters to match Z3s with Oregon leather? Have only found black in my search so far..........

I don't think you'll find any with the 'mottled' look of the oregon leather, unfortunately.

The Oregon(mottled) leather was only used on the centre seat panels, all other leather inside is smooth.

If Andy doesn't have one, then look at the other products that ebay seller has - there are lots of colours. I have their tanin-red gaiters, and they are excellent.

The smooth leather in that colour is called 'Sand.'

Yeah, Beige and wood, a true English gentleman's car interior trim! Although the wood is a little overdone in the above pic in my opinion.

If you can find a hand brake gaiter in the same material it would match and might not look too duff. :shrug

Yep, I also have the darker wood, although strangely i had the outside centre console trim in the wood too. I see you have the beige hockey-stick shaped trim which is normal from what ive ever seen and had before. My car I have now was ordered with wood trim so this is an OEM and not an after-market wood trim, just havent a clue why the console edges are also wood.

If im honest I really dont like it and this week purchased the side trim in beige from a car on ebay being broken, will swap mine out soon.

Anyone else seen the hockey-stick trim in wood?

Paid £40 for the beige ones so would sell the wood ones for the same if you’re interested. To be honest though, it might be a good couple of weeks before I get round to this replacement job. Let me know if you’re interested and I will contact you when I have them removed. Thanks
