[1013MM] Presents: My New Custom M3 Steering Wheel From Alex@Helix, Install By LTBMW!

Yes, yes, I have a 135i but this steering wheel fits the E90's too so I thought I'd share with e90post too

Got a new custom M3 steering wheel from Alex@Helix (great guy btw ). I didn't get the performance one cause it had the alanctra(sp) material. I also wanted custom stitching without the M badge cause I'm not a poser nor do I drive an M car. So I settled on this custom one with black stitching, it is also a little thicker than the OEM M3 wheel since I got the thicker opinion with a LITTLE bit more padding, probably only a few MM more but it feels way better. I can't stop driving my car and the material feels great!! The price isn't bad and it's worth it in my opinion. Ordering from Alex was a breeze, he was on top of communication and after a morning of PM's we got the ball rolling. Customization and shipped to my door took about 1.5 weeks when he told me 2-3, so quite the surprise when I got it super early! The install by superman LTBMW took around 5mins. Thanks Long ! Check it out...

Before (sorry, the only one I had):

After:





Sent in.... a french fry box. what more could I have asked for?!

Nice John! The new wheel looks sick! Looks like you need some new strobes though.

Also... why is your name Christina now?

Looks great, you should have gotten M// colored stitching like the perf. wheel, just to add a little more contrast. But If you're happy with it that's what really counts.

I got a thicker wheel from Alex too - yours looks fantastic - really love the black stitching and it matches your interior perfectly. Is Alex the man or what?
