Default Interesting stuff on shifter handles

I already knew that the 92-94 T handle shifters came with or without leather. Probably dependent on the interior seat material.

The same thing applies to the 95-99 Cobra shifter. SE'* with cloth got no leather wrapping.

Apparently the same thing applies to the 2000+ T handle (which I prefer of the 3 designs). The one I transplanted into the SSEi last year is leather wrapped, but the new one I just got for the SLE is not. Hard to tell at first glance, and it doesn't bug me, but still interesting nonetheless.

Someone has asked for a T handle button (Who was it??? cause I can't find the PM) and I found the wrapped and non wrapped.

Both were in cars with leather seats.

Not sure what you're point is! You specifically said it about cobra shifters not having leather with cloth seats. I do!

Interesting quotation job. :P

I think we can all agree...there were some weird combinations done and apparently no single rule applies on the shifters.

You got RPO 1SD? I bet that'* it. Bare-bones SE'* probably don't have that RPO.
