not too hard, you have to drill holes in the white piece to match the holes on the chrome frame.
you cut the stock shift boot on the bottom and then sandwich the boot between the chrome frame and the white plastic piece. you use the bolts to hold the white plastic/boot leather/chrome frame together
the frame just snaps into the space on the center console.
only part getting drilled is the white piece
goodluck:thumbup:

This is a must have:

I bought it directly from isotta in Italy, for $60 shipped. There is no drilling required to your cars trim. I used the existing boot and sandwiched it between the frame and the molding. A dremel tool is helpful. So basically, remove the stock plastic frame from the leather boot. Trim about a 1/2 inch of the stock leather. Cut small holes in the leather to match the platic molding included with frame. Sandwich them all together with the provided bolts.
Hope this helps.
