Oh the new steering wheel is fantastic. a lot better fee.
For the price it was well worth it.

Next will be the boring seats.

Very interesting. What is that where from? I see that it is a flat bottom. Is it a smaller diameter than stock? Is it fatter?

The next is to finish the Seats switching to the multi contour seats.
Already installed the rear seat. That was a job.
Driver seat already done. Looks and works beautiful.

Where did you find the multi contour seats? Did you buy them new or used?

I bought them used off e-bay.
The seller was a salvage Yard.
Seats look wonderful. Very low mileage.
I got a really good deal. Shipped to my
address under 1,300.00.

Curious why you swapped the rear seat. Was the pattern, material, or stitching different?
Comfort seats was a requirement in our purchase, ended up with the ventilated version from the luxury seat pkg. Range of motion is a downgrade from the e70 version.
What's next?
