Wasn't sure about getting a racing wheel, I thought it might look abit 'unfinished' compared to a airbag steering wheel but after seeing yours mike I am getting the credit card out as we speak!
Are the dials still visable ok with the smaller diameter?

It's an OMP Targa. I really wanted a dished wheel like the Momo Drift (here) but because you can't adjust the MC steering column it would have been far too close to my chest. Love the fact its got the little marker on the wheel - like I'll actually need it lol.

The tops are slightly blocked by the smaller wheels, I've learnt to live with it.

Is there a definite guide anyware for fitting Recaro Pole Positions? What items do I need, and how much do you need to take off the 'seat wing' to get it to fit by the Window?

Chippy did a writeup. Unfortunately the photos have since been deleted.

http://www.z3mcoupe.com/forum/showth...=pole+position

Have a look in my gallery, page 1, and there is a picture of the finished driver's seat.

The man who did both Chippy's and mine is based in Surrey, from memory. He takes 1.5/2" off the wings and then builds them partially back up with foam.

As mentioned by Coupe fan, just under 2" is removed from the 'ears' of the seat and replaced with high density memory foam to restore original shape.

If you need the tel number for the seat re trimming guy, pm me.

Finally found myself a steering wheel I like. Its a M-Tech 2 double trimmed in alcantara so its nice and thick and has the tri colour stitching all the way round. Feels great and makes the world of difference.
