looks real nice bud. i think i would prefer cf trim though.

that steering wheel is one of my favorite mods that an owner can do to his 3er. its all about touch points for me. the combination of upgraded clusters, performance wheel and one led lighting is so sexy.

btw may i ask what is plugged in below your trunk release button. sorry if thats a dumb question.

Thanks for the compliments. I agree that the steering wheel is one of the nicest and most unique upgrades available for our 3 series.

Thanks! I have a BMS CAN Tool plugged into the ODBC port. It's handy for auto clearing the SES code that's generated from my catless downpipe. Also a good code reader. I have since removed it because I installed a BMS Stage II tune, which includes the functionality of the CAN Tool built-in.

CF trim would look nice but I actually think the brushed aluminum goes better with my interior "theme". Which is a good thing because the OEM CF trim is like $1,700. The trim, pedals, and handbrake all match.
Soon I will install an alcantara shift boot and new shift lever; then the interior will be complete.

Of all the mods I've done, the pedals are one of my favorites.

There's a matching footrest; I already have the ///M dead pedal (came with M-sport package):

Hate to say it, but your going to hate that aluminum. The seat belts scuff it and nick it up and little things will give it nicks too that if your a bit obsessive compulsive like myself, will drive you insane. Looks nice though.

I actually searched for it after seeing it in your thread and found it. Thanks!

Took care of the e-brake last week and I have the alcantara boot, just waiting on my shift knob to come in.

Thanks man.
Here is the exact kit I ordered from getBMWParts/Tischer:
http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462
There is no BMW part # for the whole kit to my knowledge, but there are part #s for each individual piece. You want those?

I paid $780 + $45 shipping (came in a gigantic box) but it looks like price is now $860. Interesting.
