Or

$420 OE Competition Wheel (non-SMG)
$200-250 every 2-3years for a re-wrap

You decide which is more economical. The only thing that makes this hard for people to grasp is their apparent egos and ability to "pull a**" wearing gloves.

What did you spend $4k on? Nothing at 40k costs that much unless you're paying retail and someone else is getting paid to do labor.
lol bro, do you really own M3's?

lol at someone else doing labor, of course they are...why bother with it?

Anywho I had my sunroof felt replaced, valves adjusted, brakes redone (front rotors too), oil change, parking brake adjusted, CDV deleted, rear end had a leaking seal that was replaced, a few other things.

My time is worth way more than dealing with all that.

Haha. Wearing gloves isnt an ego thing, its a {|}pu:;y thing. Absolutely would take away the feel. But i guess u could put a magnum trojan over your hands and just dont worry about how u look with your polo shirt and slacks. Alcantara doesnt match anything inside of your car unless you did interior too. But i guess neither do the red interiors. No offense
