I ordered this a while back and it finally came. I don't think I need any carbon fiber accents inside the car, but i didn't like the feel of the stock plastic.

Also i have this habit of resting my right hand on the shift knob, especially at lights. Sometimes i accidentally press the park button with my palm and that's annoying.

So this cover actually feels nicer to the touch, and prevents accidental P presses.

Hopefully you guys don't have this P issue that I have but if you do, this helps!

Ps: i also have the metallic blue cup holder inserts with AR logo. They add nothing and I never notice them. I wouldn't bother ordering those but at least they were cheap.

Looks good and agreed on the stock plastic shifter cover.

Where did you order from ? Thanks.

Squeeze lower "wings" and slide trim down and towards you. Some force is required. They can be very stubborn to get to lock in.

I spent hours trying to install mine, never did get it on properly. Sure was a fun way to waste $250.

did you get the instructions? They seem pretty straightforward.

they have a link to them at the moparonlineparts site but the forum rules apparently don't allow me to post a link.

I got mine from Chris at Eurocompulsion.....came complete with a parking lot install !!!

I must point out, the Eurocompulsion piece fits a bit more flush....is the matching carbon fiber weave with the interior stock Quad pieces so if you own a Quad, I would recommend Chris's shift cover ....not sure he can perform parking lot installs if you're not local ...!!!
