I have the BMW ///M Driving Gloves which I use when autocrossing and on the track. My palms tend to sweat and get slippery, particularly with the 335is for some reason. They're very soft and tight with great feel. You can pick them up at your dealer for full MSRP or find them online for less, usually less than $35. On the plus side, they coordinate so well with your BMW ///M hat, ///M t-shirt, and ///M jacket.



Do a search and you'll find people using many different kinds of driving gloves, some costing more than $100.

Thumbs up

Bionic gloves - absolutely the best. I feel naked driving without them.

Not only is the feel excellent you can use you iPhone or other smartphone normally.

The ones at BavAuto are quite good too. I tried the BMW M gloves mentioned above , and they tended to get 'sticky', then leave ink/dye behind on the steering wheel. Caveat emptor, I guess.
