Remove Automatic Shift Boot Entirely?

I'm curious, I am looking to completely eliminate the shift booth that is currently on my 2010 cobalt. It's original as far as I know, but I plain don't like it. My husband joked the day I got it that my car also had a vagina It is odd looking with that center gathered seam...but more than anything, I simply don't like it. So, is there a way to take it off and have a non-boot shifter ? It's only on that tiny area anyhow with the letters to the side anyhow. Just wanted to ask before I go to trying to pry things off :p

pics would be nice, I could be wrong but i don't remember seeing a boot on an auto for these cars... If there is one on there it would have been added by someone most likely, again i could be wrong..

No the 2010 has a shift boot. You could get an earlier year shifter from the junkyard like this one. Only 2 nuts a clip and one connector.

Personal taste is a funny thing. Personally, I like the boot. I have thought about adding one to my 05 auto

I think she's just afraid her husband is going to start humping the center console because it looks like a vagina.

I've seen other boots that look much better... this one is just.. odd. If he's that keen on it, all the elderly ladies need to watch out... because is pretty pitiful and wrinkled LMAO... sorry if that's a bit... yeah... XP
