Talking M-Sport Wheel Cover!

I just received this in the mail today, Thanks to Frank!

It looks awesome and fits the wheel prefect!
I will post more pics after I install them both!

Nice.

My M-Sport wheel should have arrive today or tomorrow.
I had imagined the M cover being the same as stock, but with the added ///M logo. It looks a little more angular below the button openings than the standard cover, but I can't tell if it's just the angle of the photos that's fooling me. It is actually different?

You'll love your new wheel, I'm sure! Especially if you own a pre-September model which I understand has a little thinner grip compared to post September.

From what I've heard from fellow members here who have kept the cover from the non M-wheel is that there is a slight gap, so it's not exactly the same. I'm sure it's no biggie, I remember one member (Bavarian?) who said it doesn't bother him at all because you can't see it? Anyways, I wanted it regardless because I think it completes the wheel and matches the shiftknob.

I just ran out to my car to check out the stock cover. It is different. On the stock version, the curve is continuous from the lower spoke to the side spoke. The M version has two straight-ish sections joined at at angle.

It's a relatively subtle difference, but I like the M version better, I think. It's a little more sporty.

Where did you get it? I got my wheel from Albert Eliasson (aka The Swede) on eBay.
