UPDATE 12-3-07

Age Tuning, the vendor I purchased the wheel from, is making an effort to correct the situation, if all goes as planned, I will not be out any extra money. I have to give him props for seeing this thread, and still wanting to make things right with his customer, Ill keep you updated

Like eveyone else said, file a dispute with paypal and/or your CC company. Something will be resolved, and most likely in your favor.
+1 now I know i am not crazy

still waiting on the replacement wheel, it looks like everything will be fine, as long as I get refunded upon return of my defective wheel

Another member had a problem with his wheel from Qalbeli (AGE Tuning). The metal plate on the wheel didnt have holes in it where the screws were supposed to go in order to attach the airbag and multifunction cover. He contacted Qalbeli and got a proper wheel shipped out to him.

I have always wondered how this guy is able to sell the steering wheel out of a car that just recently came out, and has been doing so for over a year (im referring to the m3 wheel), when the part isnt even in the BMW parts system. Stolen? Counterfeit? Who knows - but I love the wheel I got from him.

FWIW, my wheel is stitched correctly. However, Ive always kind of felt like the stitching was a little faded, but some of the pictures ive seen of the last gen M cars with the same type of wheel seemed that way too.

The wheel I bought from them was in great condition, never installed, and had no defects. It just didn't have the brackets attached, but otherwise, a good deal.

i dont think the wheels he sells is supposed to have any brackets attached, at least for e9x's.

i know he sells complete wheels with airbags and the cover, but i dont think thats what youre talking about.

He doesn't ship airbags (I thought). If you order the M wheel from say, a dealer, it will come with the airbag bracket and connecting line. The wheel from this ebay seller is just the wheel, which is no big deal if you make the swap from a sport package wheel, but I do not have sport pkg, so I needed these extra attachments.
