Looks great adgildio. Did you send off your own wheel to be refurbed or did they supply a replacement wheel? I have been toying with the idea of getting a refurbed wheel, gear lever and gate cover (with M colored coded stitching on the latter) from Royal Steering Wheels, but as I use my coupe as a daily driver I can't send my wheel and gear lever off to them.

I have had my wheel done by Royal, can recommend. I bought a wheel off eBay for £20 which I then sent as an exchange. That might help.

i asked him to buy me a steering wheel so that i could show up and wait 30 mins while he installed it. Worked fine. Nice guy. Besides, removing and installing the steering wheel did not really look straightforward so much preferred him doing it for me.

I am also toying with doing the same to gearstick and handbrake. He showed me a picture of him having done that on a new 6 series. Looked great.

Think it looks quite good, it would have to have black tabs on though, the grey ones look rubbish, but the flat bottom would give some much needed room in a cramped cabin.

Interiors are notoriously hard to photograph well - a photo without the flash would give a very different picture I'm sure.

Would be nicer in all black, and not grey!
