Talking Want paddle-shift retrofit? See here....

Am looking for an E46 coupe, Steptronic setup, in LA. I have a M3 SMG wheel trimed in SUEDE 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. Preferably to be installed before BimmerFest. Would appreciate if you can attend BimmerFest too.

Serious inquiries only. :smile: :smile:

update:

I am suspecting that the SUEDE is the same as the one used in M3 CSL.

dayymmm..i am diggin the interior of those doors....

wowwee ! i like the inside of those doors on the CSL. And the Cup Holder's absence in the center console looks tight too, esp with the glossy / CF look of the area under the E-brake. Nice !

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!
