Has anyone got any good hi-res pics of a Leather Handbrake Lever and Console Lid vs the same bits on an XR?

4 to 6 megapixel would be useful - especially if they are side by side.

I've never seen leather versions of either in the flesh, but I'm hard pressed to tell any difference based on images I've found here or on eBay.

Both leather items have visible stitching Luke, where as standard are plastic so no stitching

the leather console lid is so much nicer to rest your arm on. where as the plastic is average. as for the leather handbrake cover. i think thats just there to make the luxury models stand out from the base models

Couldn't agree more about the console lid. The standard one in a BA is shockingly cheap and not very comfortable to rest your arm on. I upgraded mine to the leather FPV style with white stitching and it's very comfy plus looks a treat too.

As for leather handbrake, I've considered upgrading that also, but shun at removing the driver's seat for the sake of a leather handle.

Pfft. You shun in jest. It's a pretty simple exercise....

Four Bolts and a few plugs!
So Easy!
