Look Ma no hands!





Replaced my old wheel with a new one, new buttons too! What a difference, the car looks brand new again on the inside. Super easy install, took me 35 minutes all in to do everything.

Looks great! Did you wrap the wheel trim in CF?

Thanks, and yes! Carbon wrap all throughout the cabin, and I just ordered some more wrap today as I have some other ideas on what to wrap next!

This is the third car of mine now I've wrapped, and I'm getting fairly decent at it. Shocking for me of course, hah.

looks good man! my wheel trim/switch surrounds are all peeling. It bothers me. I'd like to give wrapping them a shot.

This will definitely be something I'll do in the future. I just hope the keep some inventory of these suckers somewhere. I'd hate to see the leather go in the Texas heat.

Nice job Nicky!

Thanks everybody! I certainly recommend putting on a new wheel if yours is nearly 10 years old and totally shot like mine was. It's amazing how much nice the interior looks, the Z4M has the best steering wheel of all time. THICK!

Is there a bump that you can see through the CF wrap where the M logo is? Or is it flat? Where did you get the wheel? They look kinda pricey where I'm looking.

No, I removed the M logo with an x-acto knife from the piece before I wrapped it. After wrapping, I cut out some material right around where the logo goes, heated up the logo again with my heat gun, and placed it right back where it was. The logo has been there ever since so no problems.

The wheels are very pricey, I bought mine from another forum member who said he only had it on his car a month. I believe it, you couldn't tell it from brand new when I received it.
