Question leather shiftboot

Does anybody know if anybody makes a leather shift boot that fits the bc/bf legacy's? I'm really tired of the cheap looking rubber one that currently sits in my car. I would also like to keep my current knob, just want a boot that will fit in my car and attach to my knob.

You could try finding a 2nd Gen Legacy GT/OB and see if that boot will work. And, ISTR that leatherseats.com may have shift boots (in real leather no less) that might fit your model. Good luck.

Wheelskins make a universal boot in a bunch of colours. I got black for my Impreza. Do a little customizing and it's good.
If you need to stretch the bottom out to cover the lip, use a piece of coax cable and some duct tape.
WAC has a website with details for an Impreza install.
I got mine at autosupermarket.com for $30 ish.

I sell very nice black leather (with your choice of color stitching) boots for $40... they're custom-tailored to fit Imprezas perfectly, but I'm not sure about Legacys. If you wanna try it, let me know, and if it doesn't fit, I'll take it back. I've sold them to some local iClubbers and they're all quite happy.

I don't know how the rubber booted shiftknobs work, but on my WRX and RS, there's a little collar that you peel off the stock boot and insert into the new one, and then it snaps onto the stock shifter.
