Steering Wheel non-zsp=regret

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
I didn't get sport package on my new 335i and the seats are fine, the suspension is fine, especially since I have Eibachs on the way, the wheels don't matter because I have some 19's I'm going to put on, the 135 goveno so far not a problem (only took her up to 125 on the Bahn) but the skinny ass steering wheel is really gonna bug me. I saw the post that explained the major expense to upgrade the non-sport steering wheels so I think that is out. Is there a way to get an appolstery shop to do somethong to increase the diameter without wrapping some cheesy leather wrap around it?

Thanks

Or do you have to get in and warm up and massage the wheel? Might suck in winter.

Back to the thread, I also want to know if there is an alternative way to get a bigger wheel or aftermarket wheels that work and don't look gay.

And y the hell is this thread in the For Sale section?

Well I decided to take the cheap way out. Bought some nice fluffy gloves that still allow me to have full feel and control of the steering wheel. So now when i grip the wheel, it feels padded like the ZSP wheel.

And I said it sucks. I never said u had to suck it.

lol ^^^

If you don't like the glove method, just tape some gauze or cotton or something to your wheel where you put your hands (Hot Glue for a more desirable feel). Then just take it out when you have people in the car. *This is good only if you drive by yourself a lot or commute to work* Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage you might do to your steering wheel.

Ordering a 335 without the sports package makes zero sense. There should be severe consequences for making this decision.

Well he's gonna have to live w/ that thought of not having a thicker rim in the back of his head for as long as he owns the car. It's just like having a small dick...you may never be happy, but u just gotta accept the fact and work with what u got.
