FS E46 M3 tri-stitch steering wheel (no airbag, no trim)
I purchased this E46 M3 tri-stitch black leather steering wheel earlier this year from a forum member with intent to replace the alcantara wheel on my ZHP. It was a quick, impulsive purchase based upon grainy photos, and when I received it, it wasn't quite in the as-new condition I thought it was (I'm quite OCD, anal-retentive). I recently picked up another wheel in used but as-new condition -- albeit paying more for it -- and have no use for this one...
Overall, my honest subjective rating for condition is a strong 6 out of 10 (others may rate it better). It has not been installed by me. The leather grain has been smoothed over in all areas and has shine to it from oily hands and use. The leather finish has been worn to a dull luster in some areas on the front of the wheel (back retains protective finish, just has shine from wear); the photos show where the finish has dulled. There are a couple scratches in the leather as shown in the photos but no gouges or areas of missing layers of leather. However, stitching is clean and bright. The wheel (plastics and leather) have been cleaned and conditioned by me. The wheel does not come with airbag, upper and lower trim, or airbag spring clips.
I'm asking $225 + shipping for this. Paypal only. (Based upon the other wheel I received recently, USPS Priority should run approx. $10 Cont.-US.)
I receive PM notifications, so please PM me for any questions/interested parties; I frequent Bimmerforums.com more often (mkrazit over there, as well), but since this is an E46 item, I'm listing it here. I don't live on this forum and will only check for messages.
