Looks excellent Jeff, good job I don't like the wheels as much as mine!

The colour of mine match the paint perfectly BTW

wheels were on the spot decision (had a bit of luck with a substantial and unexpected discount on the roof of a new building) saw them in the dealers and couldnt resist, bmw had them in stock so got them in a few days. the 335 in the seats was done by my friend when he did the seats. im sure he would be happy to oblige anyone wanting the same. i love the wheels but i think both the 269 and 313's look better on dark coloured cars. both are of the highest quality and what i really like is they go on with no fitment probs. steve lets have a pic of yours please

hmmm, I'm liking the gear lever, but not the gaiter or handbrake cover, not sure they would go with a black leather interior.
Also I prefer the leather feel to the handrake.

Nice pics, thanks for sharing! Lots of questions though...

How long did it take to fit these parts? Did the parts come with decent fitting instructions?

Does the hand brake handle fit over the existing one or replace it? How do you remove the automatic gear selector and gaiter?

to remove the auto knob put in drive lean in from the passenger side and grab the knob with the right hand thunb down hold tight and pull up sharply and the knob will come off easily, just push the new one on. the new handbrake comes with the gaiter, just insert a scewdriver carefully at the bottom of the gaiter and lift gently the gaiter is fixed to a plastic frame and will pop out, place the new one in at the top first then push in the bottom. takes about 5 mins each item, instructions are not included you normally have to ask the dealer to print them out and in my experience you get about 50 sheets of paper 49 of which are totally useless!! get the gear knob and handbrake you wont be disappointed.

And be careful pulling the selector knob off otherwise you could end up with a dented forehead!
