I think this is(?) the M3/1M trim piece part: #32307845940
I think I paid around 63 euros for it. The M3 steering wheel ran me about ~370 euros (w/o tax). Then my dealer charged me 20 euros to install the steering wheel!
The trim piece on a 135i is more smooth with just the M logo at the bottom. Like what comes on a 135i with full M sport, seats, alcantera headliner, M sills, steering wheel and shifter.
M3 tri stitched wheel...
I went with the M sport, just looked cleaner to be honest. The are the same price on getBMWparts.com weirdly enough the alcantara trim is actually cheaper by 56$ or something
