I got a couple other things waiting to be installed like the Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs, and CSL V1 Bumper. After that a Tint and maybe a CSL trunk and Im done with the exterior. The only other interior mod is an OEM Nav then Ill focus on a new BMW.

Nice. I have the sport wheel already so to make it look M, I need to change the lower trim. As to rims, I am happy with my 17"s for now. I like the angel eyes - I might do that as well. I will probably do the roof spoiler and front lip and then move onto the engine.

The sport wheel and M3 wheel are two different wheels. The sport wheel is vinyl but the m3 wheel is leather and soft, you actually have a grip. You are lucky because if you decide on the M wheel you don't need a new airbag. The only performance mod I have planned is a CAI but thats mainly to give the car some sound.

Actually, my wheel is leather along with my shifter and e-brake handle :-)
As to engine, I am going for Dinan software.

hmmm thats odd. I never heard of a leather non m wheel.

I just looked at the pic on the car domain site. You got the regular sport wheel. To the best of my knowledge the material is vinyl, just like the regular non-sport steering wheel.


The M steering wheel is about twice as thick and its soft....you can actually squeeze it so it feels so good in your hands while driving. I dont think the M bottom trim will fit but you're welcome to try it out. If i were you id get the black trim, Im planning on switching to black.

It is leather - this option was only available in 2005 on executive edition 325i.
The difference between M and non-M bottom trim is the cut-out on non-M.
I checked all dimensions with an owner of M3 :-)
