Leather insert Handbrake Lever

Just wanted to share what I purchased and installed recently. As most know, if you have an automatic, your wish to replace the shifter is very limited (I gave up). Likewise with the handbrake lever. Few of us "in the know" are aware of a product made by XuJi (also offer leather steering wraps that are highly regarded) that covers the handbrake. Anyway, this insert for the lever was $15 shipped.

Boring (before)


Size it up and align (I almost put it upside down)


Side it on (at first it is very easy, but then it tightens, this is where you take hold of the bottom and pull it tight)


Installed (after).


Feels very nice (leathery soft) and thickens the lever (obviously). I don't know of another way to install it (e.g., adding glue to the inside or something like that). You can get any color stitching, I chose brown and matches my interior very nicely. Red, blue, yellow, brown, grey and black are available. Aliexpress for those who want to get it.

Now that you’ve had this for a while have you had any issues with it sliding off or wearing out? I assume you won’t use it as often as you would if it were a manual but just curious about longevity.

It hasn't slid off or anything. Fit is very tight. I use it everyday. I do notice some wrinkles toward the back of the lever. I'll post a pic later.

I recommend it, although I haven't seen it on alixpress lately. I wanted to get a "spare". Good luck

EDIT:

The one I got where you can choose a wider variety of colors is no longer available, I'm sure it will pop up again. The link above gives you a choice of red/blue/black. As you can see, I got brown (or yellow, I can't remember) to match my car.

Here are a couple of pics.





It does "settle" a bit, but not enough that would bother most people.
