BMW performance steering wheel (non electric)

i love this wheel. It was hard deciding between the electric and non electric wheel but I love the flat bottum, TDC indicator and the material is just incredible.

Just thought I'd share my excitement!!!

other parts are carbon leather wrapped wheel trim and center console (i drive)

How much was the part? How much was the labor to install it?

Very nice... Did you wrap your steering wheel trim piece yourself with 3M Matte CF vinyl?

good choice OP. I like this one over the electric. Steering wheel install is not too complex; just make sure you disconnect the battery; otherwise KABBOOOMMMM there goes the airbag
