You gotta love shopping online

Last week i've been going on a bit of a shopping spree online for my lady, i mean it was valentines day I think I should treat my girl to something nice right?
anyways my Msport wheel I bought from the UK arrived today . It would of been much cheaper if I was able to get my 10% ebay coupon validated on time..

heres some pictures I just snapped
I can't wait to get it installed!!
ill upload more pictures once its swapped
thanks for looking

Got too excited so I went to my car and placed my wheel in front of my soon to be old wheel. I have to say theres a huge difference between the non sport vs Msport.

That's a significant upgrade. I went from sport to m-sport and its one of the best mods I did. Your upgrade is even more significant. Enjoy.

So last night, I finally got it replaced. Despite its claim of being really simple it was a pain in the ass to remove the airbags lol. Whats worse was every step we took, me and my friend realized that we didn't have the right equipment so multiple trips to home depot and auto zone took place. I blame my poor organization skills, since I've been acting like a 12 year old since the day I received it from the mail.
Though that being said the M sport wheels makes a huge difference both in the looks department along with the feel of it. The feel of the wheel reminds me of the E550 AMG steering wheel but with a much sportier feel.
All in all, despite the PIA process of taking multiple trips back and forth, the final product itself made it well worth the time and effort.

Looks good, the airbag removal was the worst, I tried it when my car was in garage overnight (below zero) and failed. Then I drove around with heat on and it popped right off next try. Glad you got it in!
