I can pick it up for about $700CDN shipped to my door.........I think it looks awesome but I want to know what other people think too. The OEM M3 one with airbag is another 200 on top of that so I don't want to spend 900 dollars for an OEM wheel but either way I can't stand my 4 spoke one any longer so what do you guys think??

That RAID wheel is incredible looking, and RAID pretty much Ownz the market when it comes to airbag equipped aftermarket wheels.

OT: Is the M3 wheel heated?

No the M3 wheel is not heated..........but it's brand new with the airbag. It's off of KHY (i think that is what they are called) motorsports...........I think they are sick.......but I just wish somebody could photochop that wheel on to an E36........anybody?

I think it'll look really good.
Is it the same size as the M3 wheel?

They come in 3 different sizes.......320mm/340mm and 365mm.....I am not sure what size the M3 wheel is though.

I like OEM steering wheel more than this. This one is too plain. if it had some kind of a logo in the center, maybe yeah it would be nice, but it is just too plain.
and c'mon you can't fuk with m power stitching on OEM steering wheel ;)

I'm pretty fond of mine (OLD pics) ;)



FYI: I think Victor makes OEM wheels for BMW and MBZ. Nice aftermerket replacements. http://www.victor-deutschland.de/

That's sick! MK I know he is selling it for that I am just not sure I know it is OEM and all but I still can't decide.......the raid ones are thicker and have nice grooves for good grip when spirited driving may arise.....

That steeringwheel you've got, is the same steeringwheel they use in the Aston Martin DB7. The very same steering wheel.

It looks amazing, and for 700, its not too bad at all!
But like mentioned before, the center is too plain, its missing an emblem, or something!

Yes like I mentioned before I would probably but the BMW roundel in there. I already have a spare one so we'll see! I think I am going to pick one up I still can't find an OEM M3 one (VPM3 sold his) and I think I will love the look of this one in my car. I also just got an AC Schnitzer shift knob and e-brake that are black leather and silver and I also have the pedals so the whole interior will match.

I dunno.....maybe sticking a BMW emblem would complete it but i would still go for a BMW 3 spoke like Clem posted.
