There's a guy on the forums selling DCT paddles for cheap. I got them for $165 shipped to my door. Then all you need to do is find a steering wheel you like. I went with the BMW Performance Non-Electric Wheel w/ Red-stripe.

Edit: I got my M3 paddles from this guy. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=694525

This wheel is decently priced: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=684121
Thanks!

Yo Ryan! I was wondering about how the M3 DCT Retrofit works, does it fit perfectly or do you have to do a little modding to get it to fit? Also how did you wire it up, did you use the BMS one?

If you have paddles, it's the same wiring. You just have to reverse the wires on the left side because M3 is pull only, so it's pull to downshift on the left instead of push. The paddle modules also don't cover the mounting hole completely, but you will never see it and it's barely noticeable anyways. They fit perfectly otherwise.

Real classy...makes fun of a 335i...which he drives. Watch out for this bad ass, he must drive a premium 335i.

Little GRAAANT! Let me know when I'm going to see you. I have my H&Rs off now. Look around for Konis or aftermarket shocks because I don't know how the ride quality will be like with non-sport shocks.

Might pick up 15mm spacers for the rear and switch those 10mm to the fronts but I might just sell the Volks if I find a nice set of 18s.

Here's a better picture. I honestly wished I went 18s -- wider and with a more aggressive offset.

Giving out your number just like that, huh? You're too easy

Yeah, dude. I honestly can't explain it other than it feels like stock in terms of comfort level which actually isn't a bad thing. SpeedElement setup the dampening as well as the height and it's perfect for the meantime but once I install my camber plates and M3 bits, I'm going to adjust everything accordingly. My friends been trying to get me to go autoX with them so I've actually been considering a track/AutoX setup.

I should.. I know you know how I feel 3 days after a wash! I think I'll wait for nature to hook it up with a wash! Clayed, waxed and sealed her not too long ago also.
