Well, after taking a break Ive decided to just get this over with... First, my car: 325i Sport/Premium packages and non-iDrive. These instructions should be pretty much the same for all sport E90's, but I cant guarantee that it is. The only new part that I needed was the wheel itself. ...

I'm all done. The new wheel is installed. But one more question, how exactly do I go about reconnecting the battery terminal? I just attempted it and sparks started flying as the metal piece touched the part it's suppose to seat down on. Do I just ignore the sparks and keep going? I don't want to short anything.

I din't get mine yet it was held back at customs...
Anyways i'm sooo anxious please tell me how it feels...
Is it as we predicted? Close to Z4M wheel?
As thick? As smooth?
Detailsssssssssssssssssssssssssss pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
As far as the texture, it feels just like the Z4M wheel---very sporty, smooth and just the tiniest bit squishy. It's not as thick as the Z4M wheel, but I have to say it's very close. Maybe 5 or 10% thinner than the Z4M. Have to get out my cuticle trimmer and cut some tiny extruding threads now.

Nope. No pics until I get the battery connected again.

How exactly do you reconnect the battery negative cable? Put it on and tighten?

You are brave though, I wouldn't even attempt to change a flat if I had as many questions as you. I wouldn't want to over-tighten my lug bolts trying to get them off.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

So I should disregard the sparking of the battery terminal and keep on going then?

OMG, I take my vote BACK.

Yes, just keep going. Does your beer have a twist-off cap?

Dude, I get the feeling he could set his car ablaze pumping gas, what's your point?

Excuse me. Sorry that I'm being so cautious about not doing anything to ruin or cause problems to my 50 thousand dollar car. I won't be able to go on unless I can somehow make it up to you over how sorry I am for asking questions.

You wouldn't be the greatest teacher. I could see it now---your students ask you three questions about something and you throw a ruler at them and tell them to shut up because they're asking too many questions just wanting to make sure they completely comprehend what you're saying.

On another note, the steering wheel is installed and the battery is reconnected. Just about to take it out for a drive. I'll probably swing by the car wash while I'm out too. Car wash at midnight.

How I treat you is a product of how you conduct yourself here on the board. I don't like you. Your lucky I even wanted to help you out at all. Trust me, plenty of people here think I'm very helpful, and just because other members don't say so, many don't like you.

BTW, I know plenty of people who care just the same about their 20K car, difference is they have more tact, and all around smarter than a bag of rocks, door knob, etc...

Bragging about your "$50K" 3er is just too much, at least try to act like you've had some money before.
