should i switch back to the stock shifter?

i have an automatic with a shift boot on it, i tried to switch to the OEM manual console piece but it wont work with my MOMO shift boot. the way i have it now is the boot is stretched over the stock shift box, which put stress on the console piece and made it crack. should i keep it the way it is with the boot or switch back to stock? you guys decide for me

MOMO shift ****


Stock shift ****

pushing the console to force it to fit over the boot made the piece that goes around the boot crack in 4 different places. they werent big cracks, they are actually pretty small but i just like to keep a clean/perfect car.

i just tried to use the MT console piece, it doesnt work with my shift ****, well it will but after putting it back on, getting the console off again would be a BIG pain in the ***.

am i the only one thats going to say that you should keep the boot and **** you have now? just change it to the manual console. i dont see why it shouldnt work with the momo boot, im sure youre not the first one to try it. and theres a boot on the manual cover anyway, so you just have to replace it w/ the momo one.

i think the stock shifter looks very plain and cheap. i dont see why everyone likes it so much.
