About Handbrake Covers

The BMW handbrake cover is a leather or fabric gaiter of a complimentary colour to match the vehicles’ interior. This gaiter covers the base of the handbrake in the vehicle. Its job is partly aesthetic, and gives the handbrake a finished look. It’s also used to protect the inner workings of the handbrake and ensure that they are not exposed. Because this cover is made from fabric it is prone to damage and dirt. If this occurs, it is possible to replace the cover with a suitable alternative. 

Some vehicle owners prefer to change the BMW handbrake cover for cosmetic reasons. There’s a great deal of interest in modifying a vehicle’s interior to give it a new, personalised touch and if a change of colour in the vehicle’s upholstery and interior is completed, many will want to also compliment this with similar or contrasting fittings. 

Some BMW handbrake covers are completed with a metal, rubberised or leather grip to cover the handbrake itself. These come in a variety of styles and patterns and also play an important role in ensuring that the driver can grab the handbrake in an emergency. Damaged grips should be replaced as soon as possible.

BMW trivia

  • Pop Art legend Andy Warhol was asked to hand paint a BMW, and he did the whole thing on a full-sized model in 24 minutes. He said afterwards, "I adore the car, it's much better than a work of art."
  • The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
  • Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
  • Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
  • The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
