Am looking for an E46 coupe, Steptronic setup, in LA. I have a M3 SMG wheel trimed in <b>SUEDE</b> that just arrived. Don't think I have seen this on any M3 SMG here in the US, cos I ordered this from Europe.

I will provide everything else to retrofit the system. Email me for more info on pricing. Serious inquiries only. :D

update:

I am suspecting that the <b>SUEDE</b> is the same as the one used in M3 CSL.

Vince,

Do you happen to know the part # for that steering wheel with the black stitching (instead of the blue/red)?

Thx,

hts

Unfortunately, AFAIK, SMG wheels don't come in black stitchings...

UPDATE:

Thanks to those who contacted me. So far, I have only 1 kit left. Let me clarify something too. This suede is not a cheesy material. It has a suede leather smell, not synthetic suede. Last I confirmed with my vendor in Europe, this is the SAME material used on the M3 CSL SMG wheel. It came as a surprise to him too that the wheel came in suede trim.

I have tried both the suede and nappa leather trim. In my opinion, suede trim has more grip and has a sportier look than nappa leather.;)

But both are great trims! :D
