Yes I want it! I will add that to my to do list. Probably after wheels and exhaust. Dont mind me asking but how much did you pay for it?

Definitely wheels and exhaust first! Then other exterior mods then work your way into modding the interior...

I paid $750 back in November 2011 but since then the manufacturer, AutoCarbon.de added more carbon fiber to their steering wheels its now $800 on Bimmian's website. TRULY one of my favorite mods!!!

Man 800 will buy me paint for my wheels, exhaust, E90 LCI style smoked tails, and some good front struts (which I need badly) but I will have to buy the steering wheel! Looks too good to pass off

I hear you bro, prioritize your modding list but also this pic of the 2012 version 2 steering wheel should finalize your decision:

Black carpet is one of my favorite interior mods, right up there with M3 seats and steering wheel. I did black suede headliner too, plus bought all the visors, lights, trim pieces by carpet, etc.

Here's the whole thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...=706905&page=1

Some pics:

It was easy! I had to change the color (because M3 seats were never offered in Tan in the US) and swap the outer seat rails on the seats, where the seatbelt attaches to on the sedans (coupe seatbelts attach to the floor.) Besides that, there's only one difference, the ability of the coupe seats to fold forward with the lever on the side, which is really nice for carrying big boxes and stuff, and cleaning underneath the seats. I highly recommend getting M3 seats if you have black or gray interior

Re: Fanatics! Show off your beige interior and your trim!

Thinking of gloss black carbon fiber wrap. Yay or nay? It looks good imo. What is the fanatics two cents?
