The EB GT Gear boot is a good option if you are on a budget, and dont mind cheap looking vinyl.

If you want something a little nicer - try a motor trimmer in your area - they might have some genuine leather offcuts they can make into a gearboot for you. (plus you can pick the colour, and stitching colour)

Gear knobs - there are a huge range available, and they probably look a lot better than what kezz or downingj have to offer.

The gearknob I have in my XR8 is a mustang cobra R gear knob. (its leather, pretty, and has the correct H patter)
